Our Scandalous Senate (Point of View #1) (Paperback)
Rocked by extremely public scandals at the highest levels of power, the Canadian Senate is an institution on the defensive. As the upper chamber starts to look more and more like a comfortable private club for has-beens, the real scandal is that the Senate exists at all.
