‘I invite anyone interested in the Senate’s work to come take a look’


On behalf of the other place, Senator David Tkachuk responds to CP’s suggestion that the business of the Senate is not properly accessible.

The Senate is the only legislative house in Canada that has kept and published attendance records since 1867. This is hardly an effort to hide this information, as two individuals quoted in the article maintain … Senate Debates and Journals are available online going back to 1996 …

We have recently undertaken a major redesign of our committee websites specifically to make them easier to find, navigate and search. I invite anyone interested in the Senate’s work to come take a look. We have been making every effort to invite as many people as possible to learn more about what Senate committees are doing. This includes a very well received Twitter account, @SenateCA/@SenatCA, through which we inform Canadians interested in certain subject matters or in the parliamentary process of what our committees are doing.

Senate debates are collected here, though, unlike the House of Commons debates, there is not a search function.
