One thing that caught my attention after last Wednesday’s surprise declaration when Liberal leader Justin Trudeau announced his Senate stunt, was the number of missing Liberal Senators:
Liberal Senator Larry Campbell “was not at meeting where Trudeau disclosed his plans to senators, but heard about it from his staff later”
Liberal Senator Paul Massicote “I was not there, but I spoke to many Senators since”
Keep in mind that this was the first week back and first caucus meeting for this Parliamentary session after a long winter holiday break.
Look at the number of Liberal Senators in the photo above taken immediately after the Liberal caucus meeting – there are 32 Liberal Senators and I count 13 at this press conference.
Where were the remaining ones?
