The process of Senate modernization only began with the increase in the number of Senators who don’t belong to any political party.

This serious error in the distribution of seats in the House started when previous governments introduced bills to amend Sec. 51 of the Constitution Act, 1867, to give results they wanted for purely political reasons. The error has continued under the current representation formula legislated under Stephen Harper’s government, writes Thomas Hall. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade
