Premier's Idea Of An Elected Senate Getting Support

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation would like to see a national referendum on the future of the Senate. 

The Federation's Atlantic Director Kevin Lacey likes the idea put forward by Premier David Alward for an elected Senate. He believes an elected Senate would give the Atlantic region a stronger voice in opposing measures that are not good for this part of the country.

Lacey is hoping what emerges from the controversy over improper expense claims are changes that bring about more accountability.
