Now that we have a majority government and can pass Senate reform, that should be addressed as soon as possible when Parliament resumes. It did not look good to appoint 3 defeated candidates to the upper chamber so soon after the election, and many on the right and left were not happy about it. All 3 are very qualified people who did collect a combined 51,664 votes on May 2nd. Personally I believe that Senators should be elected and have term limits; but I'm not screaming from the roof top over these appointments because I believe that the Prime Minister will deliver on this promise in due course. I'd just like to see the reforms sooner rather than later.
And I will thank Liberals not to get high and mighty about Senate appointments; as most Liberals sitting in the Senate owe their jobs to patronage. The NDP are justified to complain about this.
