Unelected Tory senators kill climate bill passed by HouseIf there ever was a time to defeat these undemocratic thugs, it's now.
The Conservatives have used their clout in the Senate stacked by Prime Minister Stephen Harper to kill an NDP climate change bill that was passed by a majority of the House of Commons.
It is the first time that the unelected Conservative senators have used their near-majority to kill a bill passed by elected politicians. The absence of more than 15 Liberals from the Senate allowed the bill to be defeated by a margin of 43 to 32.
Stephen Harper has set up a defacto dictatorship where the rule of law and Parliamentary supremacy is now threatened.
