A new report showed a Saskatchewan senator ranked fourth for spending the most money on travel in a three-month period. 

The Senate of Canada did the report between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, 2022.

Why does the WS not give a balanced report and tell us just how much the "liberal" senators spend on travel?

Good! She kicks a$$ and does a tremendous job.


Senators travel expenses alone exceed what many Canadians make in wages for the year, again this is an outrage. Their travel expenses alone exceed what these very senators expect seniors to live on, they expect seniors to pay for housing, food, travel(gas) and all other expenses, while these senators spend more on travel alone, this isn’t including all other benefits senators receive, this is corruption to the core.


I wouldn't call it corruption. There is no evidence of them trying to hide anything. I struggle to see the importance of the senate though after the last few years of Liberal Minority Governments ramming through bill after bill. If anything, the role of the senate should be called into question. Then reform their responsibilities and travel/accommodation allowances.


You can call it what ever you want, I will call it corruption.
