Who killed climate change legislation? Stephen Harper!

Reality check: Who killed climate change legislation?

For the first time, Stephen Harper used his unelected and unaccountable majority in the Senate to kill a bill from the House of Commons. Harper’s appointees stopped landmark climate change legislation which was approved by the elected House of Commons.
How did Stephen Harper feel in the past about the Senate?
“An appointed Senate is a relic of the 19th Century.” Stephen Harper, December 14, 2005
“I will not name appointed people to the Senate. Anyone who sits in the Parliament of Canada must be elected by the people they represent.” Stephen Harper, March 14, 2004
More broken promises from an arrogant and out of touch Prime Minister.
