The Trudeau Government touts its Senate appointment process as “independent” and “non-partisan”… but when a province doesn’t participate in the process (and many don’t), all of the panelists on that regional board who review potential Senate nominees are appointed by the Trudeau PMO.

(And, see the cameo appearance by “Independent” Trudeau-appointed Senator Duncan in the background – herself a former Liberal Premier!)
