Results of the survey

Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s plans to reform the scandal-plagued Senate were derailed Friday by a historic and unanimous Supreme Court of Canada decision. The top court advised the prime minister’s proposals to impose term limits on senators and create a “consultative election” process to choose nominees cannot be done by the federal government alone. What is your reaction to the Supreme Court's decision?

  • 49% I agree with the decision. The Senate was established to represent the regions of Canada and the federal government should not be able to make unilateral decisions that impact the Senate.
  • 40% I disagree with the decision. The Senate needs to be reformed. This will never happen now because seven provinces, representing 50 per cent of the population, will never agree.
  • 11% I neither agree nor disagree. In fact, I couldn't care less what happens to the Senate.
