Green Party Concerned With Fair Elections Act

After a two-week break, the House of Commons and Senate return to work today.

Expect talk and debate among MP's and Senators as the session resumes about the Supreme Court's decision on Friday which claimed provincial consent is needed before the Senate can be eliminated.

Meanwhile, proposed amendments to the federal government's Fair Elections Act are not sitting well with the Green Party

Thunder Bay-Superior North MP Bruce Hyer says there is nothing fair about the Fair Elections Act.

He says he would rather see a system of proportional representational.

Hyer adds that the entire elections system needs to be overhauled.
