Dear Minister Poilievre: Come Clean on the Senate Scandal

This week's Deloitte audit on Senator Pamela Wallin has raised numerous questions about a troubling lack of accountability in the Senate. I am asking you, as the new Minister for Democratic Reform, to undertake a review of both residency requirements as well as the process through which potential Senators are vetted, in order to prevent problems like these from happening in the future. When the Senate and government of the day is unwilling to even address whether Senate appointees are eligible to sit, it serves to further erode any remaining confidence in the institution.

The Wallin Affair: Another Example of Harper's Poor Judgment

Earlier this week, the Senate received an independent audit of former Conservative Senator Pamela Wallin's expenses. This report not only confirmed what has been reported in the news for weeks -- that Senator Wallin was involved in submitting potentially fraudulent expense claims costing taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars -- but it exposed the latest example of Stephen Harper's poor judgment. Either this Prime Minister deliberately misled Canadians or he didn't really inform himself on the facts of Senator Wallin's case, contrary to what he told Canadians. Whichever, it demonstrates a bona fide lack of honesty, integrity and accountability that has become a hallmark of the Harper Conservatives.
