Brad Wall says it’s time to scrap the Senate

by

SASKATOON – Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall says it’s time for the Senate to go.

Wall has been a supporter of Senate reform and his government passed a law for electing senators-in-waiting from the province.

But Wall now says it’s easier to scrap the Senate than to try to fix it.

The Senate has been recently by an expense scandal.

Senate Speaker Noel Kinsella says the RCMP is examining the claims of senators Mac Harb, Mike Duffy and Patrick Brazeau.

Duffy left the Conservative caucus after it was revealed that the prime minister’s former chief of staff, Nigel Wright, wrote Duffy a $90,000 cheque to repay the senator’s disallowed housing expenses.
