Five More Unelected Conservatives Appointed To Canada's Undemocratic Senate

OTTAWA - "Prime Minister Stephen Harper has appointed five new senators, bolstering his majority in the upper chamber. [...] The appointments give Harper's Tories 62 of the Senate's 105 seats. The Liberals hold 40 seats, there is one Progressive Conservative senator and two independents. 

(Now ... here's the comical part of the story ...)  
The prime minister says the new senators are pledged to support his government's efforts to reform the Senate, including term limits."
Winnipeg Free Press

.... and just for the record:

 "We don't think as a party that patronage has any place in the Parliament of Canada."
Stephen Harper
Calgary Herald - March 22, 1995

"We don't support any Senate appointments."
Stephen Harper
Winnipeg Free Press - January 29, 1996
