Savoie & Senate Reform

I don't find myself agreeing with a lot that Professor Savoie says with regards to the economy and Atlantic Canada, but i do agree with his views on senate reform. Although, it's a measure that must be done in the name of democracy, not to tout more pet projects, corporate welfare and regional development. That approach hasn't worked for decades with an appointed senate and it won't work with an elected one either.

Btw, it's too bad Savoie is coming out with this now as he could have counseled Graham on (or even prevented) his decision to throw a monkey wrench into the senate Bill S-4 back in 07. Oh well.

Hey bro, welcome back! I'm pondering some thoughts about the senate thing in terms of overall governance - will have to let it percolate for a day or so. Merry Christmas!
