Laburpena: In May 2006, the Government introduced Bill S-4 to limit the tenure of Senators to eight years instead of to age 75. A Special Senate Committee considered the subject matter of this bill and presented its report in October 2006. In December the Senate Appointments Consultations Act (Bill C-43) was introduced in the House of Commons. It provides an opportunity for voters to indicate a preference during federal elections for who they would like to see appointed to the Senate. Although neither law has yet been adopted, this article considers the impact of the proposed changes on the functioning of committees of the Upper House.
