Mr. Trudeau’s one-purge-fits-all style offers no gradation, no evaluation of individuals, no acknowledgement that some Senators are honourable, some have worked well for Canadians, some have not seen the Senate as a lottery pit for their own enrichment.
As a response to the Senate’s problems, Mr. Trudeau’s publicity-winning move is glib rather than profound, a sloughing off of the problem rather than a real addressing of it. Ultimately, “go away” is not a policy.
