A farm in Grafton, N.S., pictured. Between 2016 and 2021, the national average of total farmland declined by 3.2 per cent. But what is particularly concerning for the East Coast was that total farm area declined by more than 20 per cent in Nova Scotia during that same time frame, writes Senator Jane Cordy.

Opinion | BY PROGRESSIVE SENATOR JANE CORDY | October 26, 2020
The Senate National Security and Defence Committee, pictured June 10, 2019. A new rule change that has been proposed recently by Senator Yuen Pau Woo—and raised again in routine negotiations—would remove ownership of committee seats from individual Senators and give additional whip-like powers to leaders, who would control the seats instead. I believe that this change is antithetical to the ideals of a more modern and independent Senate. Senators should not have to sacrifice their committee contributions if they no longer wish to remain in a group, writes Progressive Sen. Jane Cordy. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade
