Mr. Speaker, where are those old-time Reformers?
When Canadians break the law, they get charged, so why are Conservatives giving their senators a free ride?
Last spring, the Auditor General reported that senators still operate under the honour system. Now, there is an oxymoron. Senators can bill Canadian taxpayers for expenses without ever submitting a receipt.
Does the government not agree that it was wrong to allow senators to duck accountability and to operate for so long on the honour system? Does it not have better respect for taxpayers' money?
