OTTAWA — Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau stunned Parliament Hill Wednesday by expelling 32 senators to sit as Independents, part of a proposed plan to overhaul Senate appointments to ensure it is a non-partisan body.
He has also written to the Speaker of the Senate, Noel Kinsella, to stress that his intention means, no matter how those now-Independent senators wish to identify themselves, they cannot call themselves Liberals in the upper chamber, the Star has learned.

I think this is the policy of a "poser" and a very cynical one at that. It is a grandstanding move that really does a great injury to the Liberal Party.
This is junior's way of saying "I am going to rid myself of the meddling interference of the elders of the Party."
Malcolm McDowell as Caligula should be his press spokesperson.
This idea is a disaster for Parliamentary government as this country has known it for generations.
Inevitably, unofficial "caucuses" will form among the "non-partisans" in the Senate, like crystals in a solution, and "voila!!", Justin Trudeau will have reinvented the wheel of Canadian politics . . . and another generation of Canadians will have had the wool pulled over their eyes by yet another political fraud.
Doing this is so much easier than tackling the real issues in Canadian politics, which are our relationship with the United States and CORRUPTION.

I have been up here a few years now. I tried to start following the politics up here, but alas, it seems that politics up here is about on par with US politics. Lieing, backstabbing, moneyhungry, psychotic, partisan politics. It's sad, I thought that up here was going to be so much better than the US. I guess the old cliche about the grass being greener on the other side is an apt analogy.
Well the senators in Canada doesn't have much purpose, they are put there by the PM so what you see is just a bunch of guys with a high pay that pass whatever the PM sends to them. Its a big waste of cash.
A Trudeau is a Trudeau, is a Trudeau.
His father was a egomaniacal navel gazing SOB.
Justin is a nothing but a delusional pretty boy trying to ride on Daddy's coattails.
The lefty's might love his hair, but that's all that he has up there.
