Senators are not elected and serve until retirement, yet they can defeat bills that the people have approved in the House of Commons. This is a terrible, undemocratic way of governance and must be abolished.

Private sector needs to grow, not these public sector departments that offer nothing back to taxpayers. Reduce the size of the bloated Canadian government and invest in our private sector, which returns true value to our citizens!

Abolish the senate. It's a huge financial burden on low and middle income Canadian taxpayers, and delivers an extremely narrow range of value to the quality of life for Canadians. The Senate could be leading serious discussions on houselessness, climate change, inflation, technology, innovation, electoral reform, monopolistic practices, tax reform, beneficial ownership registries in provinces and federally, among other important topics, but really don't.

Judges are not elected either and also serve until retirement. More than a few judges in this group of clowns in gowns in Ontario especially need to be removed from office.

It's pretty clear that it's a scam to prevent democracy from having real power in government. I by some miracle the house passes something like ranked ballots or things that challenges the status quo, the senate can just block it. They are not even elected. "Somber second thought" is what they say but it's really just preventing real change. If we want to abolish the senate, will it need to pass the senate? That way the house can fake being on the side of electors knowing full well that a bill they vote for by virtue signaling will not pass the senate. I don't even care about the expenses scandal, in my opinion politicians should be paid more to be less susceptible to bribes. No sense in paying hockey players and CEO 100x more than the people responsible for our country. They really should have "f*ck you money" (in the house that is).

Based on what has been said in the posts on this site the senate and senators would be gone. So how do we make that happen? Seems like we will never make it happen.
Soumis par Nicholas Rode le dim 10/07/2022 - 17:42
The senate was designed as the chamber of "sober second thought" but has become a rubber stamp for which ever party happens to have appointed enough senators. Not to mention that there is already a phase of "sober second thought" in the Commons: Consideration in Committee. Simply strengthening this phase would wholly reproduce what the senate was created, and has utterly failed, to do.

A bicameral legislature is a much needed system to establish checks and balances on legislation. However, an unelected body is undemocratic in nature. Thus, rather then abolishing the Senate, Canadians should elect members to the upper house of Parliament on six year terms. This would allow Canada to remain democratic and still provide checks and balances on the lower house.

The senate is a resting place for the party faithful and an ungodly drain on the Canadian economy . Many senators seldom are in attendance and simply suck up money without contribution to Canada in any way shape or form Fire the whole lot without pension or benefite they deserve NOTHING

The entire government system needs to be abolished.
Income tax was introduced as a TEMPORARY measure to pay for the first world war. Now, the average Canadian is paying a fifth or more of their income to the government and seeing very little in return for their forced investment.
The system is broken and needs to be shut down.

The Senate is old and archaic and is no longer needed, I proposed a complete restructuring, of the government systems in Canada (Abolishment to bring Freedoms and Equalities back to the people.

thank you for the freedom
the senate is an undemocratic institution and should be abolished, or, at the very least, have their power drastically reduced (much akin to the house of lords in the uk, unable to block legislation voted on by the commons)
