Unelected Liberal Senators invalidate election results 
(en francais)

What better way to bring Senate reform to the forefront? Whatever you can't accomplish in the House of Commons, use a bunch of unelected partisan hacks to do.

This may all turn out to be academic, as Flaherty has yet to table his budget, but the threat alone is very telling. The arrogance never ends. Liberals, elected or unelected, know what's best for Canada. Get used to it.

As more time goes on, I'm leaning towards the NDP's position of just scrap the damn thing altogether. One large blow for smaller government.
