Unreformed Senate as Symbol of Western Alienation

An article on Senate reform in the Toronto Star? The mind reels.

After implying that the current Senate is 'inbred', Murdoch Davis
writes:
In the West, Senate reform is not just a point for public policy
discussion. It has become a symbol. In Alberta, particularly (as with most
irritants in Canada's regional relations), it's a symbol of the willingness — or
lack of it — in Ottawa to address western concerns.


We've done our best fo rso long to work within the system, it's time to start working outside of it.
