Mr. Speaker, I think we could all agree that everyone wants this whole Parliament to be accountable. Everybody wants the Senate to be accountable. In fact, it has been very discouraging to see a few individuals from all different parties who have taken advantage of the Senate.
Recently this year there has been a very strict accountability of the finances, a very close examination of the Senate. We know the Senate has a long and wonderful history where it is known as the chamber of sober second thought. We know that there are a lot of wonderful senators who work extremely hard and play within the rules. Since some of this has happened in the Senate and it has been revealed that some individuals allegedly have misused funds, this very strong accountability of the money has been put in place. I believe it was last December.
Is the member aware of this aspect, that accountability is being put in there and has been put in there now?
