About The Senate
From sencanada.ca The purpose of The Senate is as follows:
The Senate is the Upper House in Canada’s bicameral parliamentary democracy. It unites a diverse group of accomplished Canadians in service of their country.
Parliament’s 105 senators shape Canada’s future. Senators scrutinize legislation, suggest improvements and fix mistakes. When the Senate speaks, the House of Commons listens — a bill must pass the Senate before it can become law.
Senators also propose their own bills and generate debate about issues of national importance in the collegial environment of the Senate Chamber, where ideas are debated on their merit.
Created to counterbalance representation by population in the House of Commons, the Senate has evolved from defending regional interests to giving voice to underrepresented groups like Indigenous peoples, visible minorities and women.
The partners and staff of Chaggares & Bonhomme are incredibly worried that the liberal government is going to pass the proposed legislation as it is currently written without consideration to the extensive feedback that has been provided and is being provided by the Canadian tax community. If this happens, our little understood Canadian senate will become of paramount importance. They are the backstop who protect Canadians from poorly drafted or ill advised legislation. Please reach out to all of the senators in the attached list using one of the above templates in order to ensure that they understand the importance of the issue and the will of the Canadian public.
