So, she resigned her seat in the Senate before she gets older....does anyone have the heart to break the bad news to her....SHE ALREADY IS OLD!!



Apparently too much partisanship for her liking. Yeah, as if she got the appointment because of her stunning good looks and eloquent speaking voice.

Heh....now that Harper has a majority, it's become too partisan.

She's done nothing throughout her political life but cash a cheque.

even worse

the announcement about her resignation ( we have it on here somewhere ) was a few months ago... but she just wanted to wait until now.... now why would someone want the entire summer paid out when they are not working at all...

Why wouldn't you?!
I don't know their salary schedules, but if a non-sitting senate gives you the summer off on your same pay scale, that's a pretty sweet deal.

Administratively, it's not like the position would be filled in the summer anyway...

She was appointed to the Senate in 1994, but no partisanship for the last 17 years, it just came up in the last bit.

Just remember that the 1 billion dollars it costs for the Senators is 1/2 what Harper spent on that idiotic G20 or G8 or G7 meeting last year!

Where are the cost/benefit reports on that?

Sharon Carstairs has been in public office for many years and I know her as a dedicated person who has served the public well.

Take a look at her record! Damn good person!

Like another liberal in her area, she's well past her best before date.

She sold out a long time ago. Another worthless politician.

She is not a pig at the trough, and she certainly never sold anything out!

Those 2 comments tell me that both of you do not know anything about Sharon Carstairs personally.

My daughter worked on her campaign, and my wife has met her , many years ago and was very favourably imprssed.

Very few people impress my wife, least of all her husband of 42 years, so you know that my wife is awfully smart, especially in her political acumen! lol
