Canadian Senate Requirements

By

James Bredin

What are the requirements for an appointment to the Senate; no one knows.
But it helps to be a live Liberal, under seventy-five and out of jail, the saying goes.
It also helps to be a pompous prude and preferably unemployed; you get the impression.
You could be a mindless nerd without an independent thought; itís your ideal profession.
You only have to know how to vote according to his wishes; the prime minister of course.
You donít have to think a thought and youíll be told how to vote; itís favoritism with force.
And Canadians will love you because of your title; not how you got there.
Government propaganda says you deserve what you get; and soon youíll be a millionaire.
