Abolish the Senate

Why are we paying $90 million a year for an unelected, unaccountable Senate?

While Canadians are working harder just to make ends meet, the Senate in Ottawa is working less, but increasing in size and cost.

The Senate sits only 90 days and costs taxpayers over $90 million a year.

Unelected and unaccountable senators represent the parties that appointed them, not their regions or the Canadian people.

Senators are only required to work three days a week – when they actually bother to show up at all.

The eight provinces that once had senates (called “Legislative Councils”) scrapped them years ago. The people of New Zealand have also done away with their upper chamber. It’s time for Canada to do the same.

Justin Trudeau's Senate Reform plan might end up costing Canadians more money than ever before!

It’s time to abolish the Senate.

Do you agree with Erin Weir and the NDP that we should abolish the Senate?
