Federal Government Promises to Pursue Senate Reform

Minister of Natural Resources and Kenora MP Greg Rickford says the federal government is hoping to gain support from the provinces for Senate reform.

The Supreme Court of Canada says the government doesn't have the power to enact most of the changes it has proposed for the Senate without the support of the provinces.

Rickford says they will review the decision.

Rickford says they can always improve on regional representation.
