I was appointed as an Independent Senator, meaning I decide how I vote on each bill and motion. No party pressure, discipline, caucusing in the House or political fundraising.
New Ontario PSG Senator Andrew Cardozo says 'no one hands me speeches to deliver, or questions to ask and no one tells me what to say, or admonishes me for saying the wrong thing, or for not saying the right thing. No one assigns me committee membership and I'm politically independent.' The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade
