    Canada's "FAKE SENATE Not Independent But 90% Of Time Vote For Trudeau Government" & BEING REWARDED


    The cost of the Senate has soared in the last five years


    The independent Senate is "fake" because many of the ISG senators support the Liberal government's legislative agenda. "They claim to be independent yet they vote in lockstep with the Trudeau government," she said.

    The cost to run the Senate of Canada has increased by more than a third over the last five years as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's reform agenda has led, in part, to increased expenditures in the upper house. CBC News has reviewed the Senate's spending over the last six years. Before Trudeau's first election, in the 2014-15 fiscal year, the Senate cost taxpayers $90 million in inflation-adjusted 2019 dollars. The Senate is spending millions more on research, office, travel and living expenses, information technology (IT), human resources and media relations — and it has hired dozens more full-time bureaucrats. Senate committees are traveling more; the natural resources committee undertook a cross-country tour in the spring while studying Bill C-69, for example. That has led to tens of thousands of dollars in new costs for the upper house. Unlike the situation in 2014-15, the Senate now has almost a full complement of senators, with 100 of the 105 seats occupied. However, the addition of more senators doesn't explain all of the cost hikes.

    The costs could increase further with the introduction of new Senate groups. Under the rules, the 11 members of the new Canadian Senators Group (CSG) are entitled to some $460,000 a year in new funding to hire staff for a secretariat to help prepare research. Conservative Saskatchewan Sen. Denise Batters said she and other Conservatives have been trying to "hold the line on spending" but they're often out-voted or accused of "micro-managing" by Independent members on the internal economy committee on budget items. "I think it's par for the course with this prime minister. I mean, not only is Justin Trudeau's so-called independent Senate fake but it's become very expensive," she said. "The Senate has the same purpose and the same number of senators that it's had in the past, but under the Trudeau government the cost has now ballooned." A CBC News analysis from 2018 found ISG senators vote with the government, on average, over 90 per cent of time. Read more ...

    In otherwords, the Canadian senate is a bunch of 9 to 5 clerks!


    The Senate is the Upper House of Canada's Parliament. Its 105 members are appointed and hold their seats until age 75. The Senate's purpose is to consider and revise legislation, investigate national issues, and most crucially according to the Constitution — give the regions of Canada an equal voice in Parliament.
