I have been watching the train wreck that involves the three stooges Pamela Wallin, Mike Duffy and Patrick Brazeau, ditched because of gross negligence and misconduct involving the old expense account and yes they are guilty as charged.

The Senate was initiated to provide an independent point of view not be an open expense account for doing business other than what they were appointed to do, they have clearly failed at this.

They claim that children should be limited to less than two hours of entertainment based screen time per day, I say good luck, most kids spent some eight hours plus on their phones, computers and X-box games.
