    2Are you saying that a terrorism investigation trumps civil rights?
    Are you agreeing that NSL's by the thousands are not an invasion of a citizens right to privacy when they are twice removed from a suspect?
    I don't see the text on the site you posted. How about you direct me to it?

    As for the public meetings how do you know it had no impact? There were literally hundreds of briefs from highly qualified citizens.

    I see your point vis a vis electing SC judges, but the average canadian voter is NOT qualified either to determine the best judicial candidate, nor what our constitution should contain.
    It seems that attitude about the Canadian people not being qualified to select SC judges extends to them not being smart enough too select their own Senators either. Actually I think there should be a debate on these SC appointments, as there is in the US, rather than what we have now. They should also have fixed terms.

    But it seems we agree more than disagree in these areas.

    Being looney is certainly not a crime, otherwise Leftists would not be walking free.
    Yes it does, if you have a problem take it up with the border guards and Immigration.

    Your Senate is totally different.

    The Canadian senate is the equivalent of the House of Lords in the English parlimentary system. Its members are appointed by the sitting government usually in recognition of a noteable contribution to Canada or as a political favour returned. It has very very limited power, and I can only think of two times in the last 40 or 50 years where they attempted to exercise that power - they failed.

    I thought there was lots of debate in the confirmation hearings, and the vote in both houses? Was I wrong?

    If it has limited power, though this is denied by every Senator, why bother with it at all? I'm for a Triple E Senate, with the term limits.

    Having debates or White Papers doesn't mean any of these complaints or recommendations would be acted upon. Are Canadians more free since the Charter of Rights and Freedoms was passed? I don't think so. It has been a boon for lawyers though.

    I believe we should just abolish the senate it serves no purpose other than to suck money.

    By the way, criteria is the plural of criterion. The no-talent fast talkers who brown-nosed their way into becoming role models for language usage represent an irresponsible generation. Similar examples of their worthless educations are the way these phonies misuse data, media, bacteria and phenomena, which are plurals of datum, medium, bacterium, and phenomenom. These people stole their jobs, and I feel it is my duty to expose how ignorant, pretentious, and dysfunctional their language is. This whole Internet looks up to these ambitious imbeciles and is not independent at all. In fact, the media themselves tell us that we are and they are slavishly believed about that too.
