Canada's Second Elected Senator

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has announced in the House of Commons today that Bert Brown will become Canada's second ever elected Senator. Mr. Brown was selected to be a "Senator-in-waiting" in Alberta's third Senate election in 2004.

Did you know we had an elected Senator once before? In 1989, Stan Waters won an Alberta election for a Senate seat, who was then appointed by Prime Minister Brian Mulroney the following year.

No word on whether or not he's agreed to a term limit... I would assume that one would not be applied to him unless the Senate passes Mr. Harper's legislation calling for term limits.
