MPs plan Senate offensive to get private members’ bills through

‘It’s going to be a different exercise than it is through the House of Commons where I know most of my colleagues and can speak to them any time,’ says Liberal MP Colin Fraser.

There are eight MPs' private members' bills in the Senate. Five of them are Liberal bills, and the other three are from Conservatives. Conservative MP Todd Doherty, left, and Liberal MPs Chandra Arya, Colin Fraser, and Mark Gerretsen are among the MPs hoping to see their bills pass the Senate.
