In 2013, the Canadian Senate is an anachronism. Senators are completely unaccountable to taxpayers, yet they cost over $100 million annually. Abolishing the Senate will restore relevance, accountability, and confidence in our federal Parliament.

Letter to
Prime Minister Stephen Harper
Member of Parliament Calgary Southwest Stephen Harper
Leader, Conservative Party of Canada / Chef, Parti Conservateur du Canada Stephen Harper
Canadians have lost their trust in the Senate. The unelected and unaccountable body has little regard for taxpayer dollars and has become a dumping ground for party bagmen and hacks.

Ontario, Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Quebec have all gotten rid of their upper chambers, so it is very possible for the federal government to achieve the same democratic victory.

Respect taxpayers and respect democracy. Abolish the Senate.
