This website is about better Canadian government through a non-partisan Senate
not just by “Independent Senators,” but by truly non-partisan ones.


The Senate is an odd mix of distinguished Canadians and faithful servants of the political party in power when they were appointed.

I hope we’ve seen the worst of the entitlement mentality that patronage appointments can foster.

I know we can do better.

Why Now?

One of the many tasks on the Prime Minister’s agenda will be to fill 22 Senate vacancies, and he has promised to appoint qualified people, using an advisory panel.
