Senate did alright on medically assisted dying Bill C-14, Senate reform in action

In the case of Bill C-14, the Senate added in a positive way to the public discourse on this most difficult subject that affects all of us. As time goes on, we will have a better idea if this oddly-composed Senate effectively performs the Sober Second Thought role originally envisaged for it. Bill C-14 may just be one case but so far, so good, Senators.
