The kindest thing one can say about Liberal leader Justin Trudeau’s Senate reform initiative is that change has to start somewhere.
As is the case in the revolt by Conservative federal caucus backbenchers, any suggested improvement to our ailing parliamentary democracy should be encouraged. After all, is Saskatoon Humboldt MP Brad Trost’s motion for “electronic” petitions – a move that would allow average Canadians to have a direct say on which issues MPs debate – a bad thing? Even if special interests like the anti-abortionists that Trost supports would be able to occasionally hijack a parliamentary debate, is that so bad? Democracy is always a bit messy.
Similarly, no one should suggest that separating the partisan Liberals hacks in the Senate from the partisan Liberal MPs in House of Commons (who may very well be hacks too, but at least at the decency to run for office and get elected) is a bad thing, either. And if this was simply limited to Trudeau’s decision to “boot” his senators from the caucus as an opening salvo to end Senate partisanship, it would be a good first step.
But what Trudeau is doing hardly fits the criteria of political altruism – giving up something of value for the love of democratic fairness. Instead, it’s seems to be pretty much as Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his designated Conservative attack dog Pierre Poilievre described it – a clumsy, preemptive attempt to distance the Liberal caucus from the pending Liberal senators’ expenses mess that Auditor General Michael Ferguson might soon unveil.
The first problem with what Trudeau proposes is that it’s unlikely to go beyond what it now is – a meaningless and insincere gesture.
Were he actually the prime minister kicking senators out of caucus and demanding they actually do their jobs of applying non-partisan, sober-second thought to the laws of our land, it would obviously mean more. But Trudeau is a third-party leader whose power is limited what he did – telling his Liberal senators to go play elsewhere for now. He hasn’t given up anything.
These new “Senate Liberals” (as opposed to Liberal senators) will still hold their partisan views, still likely campaign for the party that appointed them and will evidently still function as a “Liberal” caucus in the Senate with a leader and a party whip. If you are truly independent, why do you need a whip to tell you how to vote? Really, what has now changed for the Liberals other than the fact their senators now have one less caucus meeting each week?
Admittedly, there is a bit of validity in the Liberal talking points that suggest Trudeau (who cannot actually fire the existing Liberal senators from their jobs) is simply doing, for now, what he can do in the name of democratic reform. If and when he becomes prime minister, he will be able to distance politics from Senate appointments by handing the task over to some non-partisan committee. But won’t we still have nonelected people overseeing our laws? And who is to say that nonpartisans will not get appointed under the new system?
Besides the little matter of whether Trudeau will ever become prime minister, will he follow through? Opposition leaders often don’t. See: Stephen Harper, who once vowed not to appoint senators and has now appointed more than any other prime minister. Given past Liberal government history of exceedingly partisan appointments – one of its last Saskatchewan Senate appointments was Tony Merchant’s wife, Pana Merchant, for heaven’s sake – should we really take Trudeau’s commitment seriously?

THE boss of the company that owned the Tiger Moth that crashed and killed two people says pilot error was “definitely not” the cause of the fatal joy ride, with new footage emerging revealing the left wing snapping off before the plane pierced the water.
Geoff Stillman, of Tiger Moth Joy Rides at Pimpama, says pilot Alex ‘Jimmy’ Rae, killed in the accident, was not responsible for the crash.
The footage shows victims Mr Rae and passenger Taissia Umenc’s last seconds alive before the plane crashed into the ocean off South Stradbroke more than a week ago.
New information from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau reveals the left wings on the Tiger Moth had “failed”.

HARRISBURG, Pa. — Republican Gov. Tom Corbett compared the marriage of same-sex couples to the marriage of a brother and sister during an appearance on a Friday morning TV news show.
The Pennsylvania governor was on WHP-TV in Harrisburg speaking about gay marriage when an anchor asked about a statement his lawyers made in a recent court filing, comparing the marriage of gay couples to the marriage of children because neither can legally wed in the state.
“It was an inappropriate analogy, you know,” Corbett said. “I think a much better analogy would have been brother and sister, don’t you?”
Corbett, a former federal prosecutor and two-term state attorney general, also said he does not think a pending legal challenge to Pennsylvania’s ban on same-sex marriage belongs in federal court.
“The Supreme Court left it up to the states to determine under their laws as to what is and isn’t a marriage,” Corbett said. “The federal court shouldn’t even be involved in this. But if they say they are, then they’re going to make a determination whether the state has the right to determine that a marriage is only between a man and a woman and not between two individuals of the same sex.”
Mark Aronchick, a lawyer for the plaintiffs in that case, called Corbett’s remarks “insensitive, insulting and plainly wrong.”
“In other words, some kind of incestuous relationship,” Aronchick said. “He’s just out of touch on this one. Gay people marry for the same reasons straight people do – to express their love and to declare their commitment before friends and family.”
A Corbett spokesman offered no immediate comment Friday morning.
Ted Martin with Equality Pennsylvania, which advocates on behalf of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, called the governor’s remarks “shocking and hurtful” and asked him to apologize.
Corbett’s attorneys in August included a reference to children in a legal brief involving same-sex couples seeking marriage licenses. In the court filing opposing allowing same-sex couples to intervene in the state’s lawsuit to bar a suburban Philadelphia county from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, the lawyers made an analogy to a pair of 12-year-olds, saying if the children were issued a marriage license and tried to defend it in court, they wouldn’t be taken seriously because the license was never valid.

The government’s gay marriage Bill is expected to become law by the end of this week, after the legislation cleared the House of Lords on Monday afternoon.
Peers gave the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill its third reading without a formal vote after approving an amendment that would see ministers examine the pension arrangements for gay couples.
The legislation will now return to the Commons on Tuesday evening where it is expected to be rubber stamped by MPs and sent to the Queen for Royal Assent by Thursday at the latest.
The government expects the first gay weddings to be able to take place in Summer 2014 following the completion of implementation work.
Speaking to a jubilant pro-gay marriage rally opposite parliament, Nick Clegg thanked campaigners for “keeping politicians feet to the fire” to ensure the Bill was not derailed by opponents.
“Once what was felt, or considered, to be a radical will soon be the law of the land,” he said. “People will look back on it and think, ‘what on Earth was the fuss all about’.”

“It should be entirely unremarkable and completely unusual that people who want to express their love to each other want to commemorate that love and want to celebrate that love regardless of who they are regardless of their gender regardless of their sexuality should be abel to do so on equal footing.”
Stonewall chief executive Ben Summerskill said: ‘It’s impossible to express how much joy this historic step will bring to tens of thousands of gay people and their families and friends. The Bill’s progress through parliament shows that, at last, the majority of politicians in both Houses understand the public’s support for equality – though it’s also reminded us that gay people still have powerful opponents.”
The Bill had a turbulent time in both the Commons and the Lords – with a significant number of MPs and peers voicing fierce opposition.
