"Countervailing Powers in Parliament: An Inside Look at the Senate" By President Emerita Lorna Marsden

Feb 11, 2014, 12pm-2pm

Lorna Marsden is a professor and president emerita of York University, a sociologist and a former member of the Senate of Canada.

With reform proposals swirling around the House and media, do any of them deal with the essential purposes of a second chamber? After working as a senator for more than eight years and thinking about it ever since, Marsden will raise some serious questions for your consideration as we wait for the Supreme Court decision on the government's reference.
