So Prime Minister Paul Martin claims (in BC, not Ontario, natch) to suddenly see the need for an elected senate?
Sure, and Gilles Duceppe is a federalist, Jack Layton is a capitalist, Stephen Harper is a communist and Arnold Schwarzenegger is a 98-pound girlie man.
Paulie isn't going to fool anyone. He had since 1993 to support an elected senate but didn't. He promised to fix the democratic deficit but made it far worse for the purpose of winning the Liberal leadership and the election.
Could there be a more ridiculous spectacle?
