Mr. Speaker, I do agree. I do appreciate the minister's effort on this very important file.
I strongly believe in term limits for senators. It is in the best interests of all Canadians and our institutions.
I would just ask the minister to make sure that we do consult with all appropriate stakeholders and the provinces. We should have a discussion at committee about whether eight years is the right amount of time or not. I will support whatever comes out of committee. But we should have something that is balanced, respectful and in keeping with our traditions.
