Canada needs to have an elected, not appointed, Senate

Web Lead

To the Editor:

I have delayed in writing regarding the expenses charged to taxpayers by members of the Senate. I have noticed that some members have decided to conveniently resign to avoid prosecution. I find it outrageous that these people are not held accountable for their actions. I venture to say that every one of those will escape going to jail.

I would like to remind readers that in one of my last letters, there was a warning about what is happening now. I also petition the Harper government to have an elected Senate in lieu of the present appointed Senate.

My wish is that someone with pure integrity can come forward to lead us into forming a good government to make us proud to call ourselves Canadians. Is it too much to ask for? I don’t think so.

I feel we have the authority to do housecleaning. Let’s do it now. I, for one, won’t stop until I get satisfaction.

This is a fair warning. Don’t take it as a threat but a promise.
