Senate Visit...
I went to the Senate today to watch some of the debates, and to compare it to the House of Commons. It was actually a lot of fun, and in some ways more interesting than the HoC. They kept pounding on their desks, and one lady kept accusing another guy of calling her "small-minded". She demanded an appology, which he of course refused to give. Then they senator said, "if you check the record, I think you`ll find that I simply said that Newfoundlanders are not as small-minded as the senator that represents them..." It was pretty funny at the time, with the rest of the debating that was going on.
