All eyes on Red Chamber, as Senators push back on key government bills
Senators have proposed dozens of changes to the Liberals' impact assessment and gun bills, have concerns about its solitary confinement legislation, and recommended its tanker-ban bill not proceed.
Independent Sen. Kim Pate, left, says more work needs to be done on the prisoner-segregation bill, C-83. Independent Sen. Yuen Pau Woo, centre, says committees shouldn’t reject government legislation, like the tanker-ban bill, C-48. Meanwhile, Conservative Sen. Don Plett, right, says he’s frustrated by the government’s ‘heavy-handedness’ in dealing with the gun bill, C-71. The Hill Times photographs by Andrew Meade
