Senators split over new clerk, Sen. McCoy calls him ‘prime minister’s man’ in the Red Chamber
The appointment of Richard Denis and planned ‘transformation’ to the Senate’s human resources department are the latest in a string of changes to the Upper Chamber’s administration.
Sen. Peter Harder is the government's representative in the Senate. Sen. Elaine McCoy is the former facilitator of the Independent Senators Group. Sen. McCoy says she is disappointed with the government's decision to name a veteran House of Commons clerk as the new interim clerk of the Senate over Senate staff with more experience in the Red Chamber. None of the Senate's top three clerks at the moment have more than three years of experience in the Senate. The Hill Times file photograph
