Senator Simons is doing her job and then some. She’s offering amendments to compromise, cooperating with concerned citizens she’s engineered to meet publicly on their turf.
This is how politics works.
Conservative Senators are obstructing any changes that would limit pipeline expansion.
Alberta has an economic need to access the coast. Period.
Compromise to protect the environment is on the negotiating table.
It’s the Senate that’s blocking democratic cooperation & compromise.
Senator Simons is shouting from the upper chamber in the only way she can. There’s a major problem with the Senate caused by Conservative obstruction of climate action and environmental protection as mandated and demanded by the majority of Canadians.
Her vote no is a bull horn to grab your attention.
This is a Senator demanding national attention to the problem. Not an Alberta Senator shilling for Cons.
Don’t read it with the eyes focussed on her decision. Read it looking for information on what she is describing that conservative Senators have rejected. Democracy.
Thank you Senator Simons for your continued dedication and persistence to keep Albertan and all Canadian citizens informed of your Senate role and responsibilities.
Every Canadian owes you a debt of gratitude.
You have my attention. The Senate is broken.
We need to call out partisan obstruction of the will of the true majority of the Canadian electorate.
Changing the Executive branch won’t address the problem.
Attending to the problems in the Senate will.
