Federal: National Referendum on Abolishing the Senate

To the Prime Minister and the Parliament of Canada

The Canadian Senate is neither elected nor accountable to Canadians. For nearly 20 years, politicians have dragged their feet on Senate reform. Only Alberta has held Senate elections.

Canadian taxpayers pay $104 million each year to cover six-figure salaries, expense accounts, personal staff, lavish offices and expensive foreign travel for unelected Senators.

The unelected Senate has refused to enact legislation approved by a majority in the elected House of Commons and is an undemocratic relic from the 1860s.

Canadians should decide once and for all if they want the current unelected Senate. It’s time for a national referendum on abolishing the Senate.

We, the undersigned are calling for a national vote on getting rid of the Senate, on the same date as Canada’s next federal election.

You have the power to change who influences politics in our country: big unions, big corporations and government-funded special interest groups can be challenged by the contributions of thousands of individual taxpayers who care to make a difference.
