I'm in favour of paying him until he's proven guilty (say for a maximum of two months) but he's been left in a position that makes fulfilling his duties impossible- if he has to travel he should at least get the expenses and should NOT be getting paid if duties are removed. I listened to a discussion on the radio about the senators this morning, besides being morons themselves, they are surrounded by morons! Even entertaining the thought that P.E.I. should have equal representation as Ontario is retarded. What happened to "Rep by Pop"? As far as length of term, I think 5 years should be it. As far as non attendence, if they don't show up they don't get paid. I suppose they should be allowed sick days to be paid, upon submission of a note from their doctor. It shouldn't be hard to straighten those bastards out!
