Why announce this far ahead of time that she is retiring?

two simple reasons.
1) If she retires right now, Harper gets to appoint her replacement. She is hoping Libs take majority and a lib will get the seat
2) real reason? Her appointment date

01994-09-15 September 15, 1994
wanna bet that waiting a couple of months gets her something more? ( plus it will pay for all her summer travel eh?)





I especially like this comment. Tried clicking on thumbs up on it more then once.
"All that I'm going to remember is that she voted AGAINST raising the age of consent."

Sharon Carstairs is one of the smartest, hard working , above board politicians that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting!
She has been working in the Senate for so many years, and at 69 years of age, has exhausted herself?
Pity. I am going to send her an e-mail telling her to take 4 months off and then get back to work!

... so you're mad because she's choosing when she'll retire and letting us know ahead of time?

Would you retire a few months early if it meant you took a massive hit on your pension?
