We all know that Bill C-6 can easily pass from the house of commons, but what will happen once it reaches to the SENATE. I know historically and traditionally the senate passes most Bills without any problem. But technically they can still opposed this bill in SENATE as conservatives have majority there, and they have already opposed this bill in house of commons. Have any one of you talk to your MPs about this situation? What they have to say?

The senate is the only place where some turbulence might occur if JT doesn't populate it with Liberals before that.

Senate isn't going to want its legitimacy to decline any further by obstructing legislation too fervently. Some Conservative members will make some noise, but this will pass in one form or another eventually......

I agreed. The Senate won't block this.

I wish we could launch a bill to abolish the Senate. Now that would be a useful bill.

Senate in Canada looks like a retirement center for the well-established. lol
but It won't be abolished because that's not British.

I read that in 2010 they defeated a Climate change bill that had got a majority vote in the house of commons on the instructions of Stephen Harper. But of course now the dictator is not there.

I hope you both speak the truth.

Fingers crossed about that!
I saw on wikipedia that ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senate_of_Canada ) that the Senate is composed of 41 Tories, 21 Liberals and 23 Non-Affiliated.
Are the 23 Non-Affiliated liberals in disguise?
I see that the Representative of the Government in the Senate is Peter Harder, Non-affiliated, appointed by JT.
I don't know exactly how all of this works...
