The Canadian Senate: Our Bills Are Bigger

The Canadian Senate. Outside of journalists, only a few dozen people watch it live. Maybe a couple hundred follow it on a semi-regular basis.

So I can't think of a better appointment than the owner of the Toronto Argos:

Lions, Argos owner Braley tapped for Senate

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has appointed David Braley, a Hamilton-area businessman who owns two Canadian Football League teams, to the Senate to fill a vacancy from Ontario.

Braley, owner of the B.C. Lions and the Toronto Argonauts, will immediately replace Conservative Senator Wilbert Keon. Keon has reached the mandatory Senate retirement age of 75.


  • Is that the guy who had donated money to Harper's leadership race? Sorry, I forget where I saw that the other day, maybe at Maclean's.

    But is Harper now selling Senate seats?

  • I'm still confused as to how he's allowed to own two CFL teams. That's just asking for problems.
