Harper’s Senate Goons

Stephen Harper promised over 8 years ago that “the Senate must change and we intend to make change happen… The government is not looking for another report but is seeking action.” But since becoming Prime Minister, the main action Stephen Harper has taken has been to appoint 59 new senators (there are 105 in total).
