We're not sure whether BC Senator Neufeld is disgusted with the use of the word 'Bitches', or more disgusted with the fact that his apparent archenemy, West Moberly Chief Roland Willson, is a duly elected First Nations Leader, that DOES represent 'his people' ..... since 2000.
..... whereas Senator Neufeld WASN'T duly elected by British Columbians, nor those same West Moberly First Nations people that he is appalled with.
Nor did Prince Edward Islanders get to elect their Cavendish Mike Duffy son to the Senate! All that high falutin rewarding was done by Prime Minister Steven Harper ....

.... As for his position as MLA, Richard will resign and the seat will sit vacant until the May provincial election. The Premier (Gordon Campbell) will also designate a new person to take over Richard’s responsibilities as Minister of Energy Mines and Petroleum Resources.
Mr. Neufeld is one of three BC residents on the Prime Minister’s apppointment list, which also includes CTV’S highly popular veteran broadcast journalist, Mike Duffy. Seven of the new senators come from Atlantic Canada, four from Quebec, two from Ontario and one each, from Saskatchewan and the Yukon. Energetic City news
The Province Letters to the Editor:
Richard Neufeld is a senator for British Columbia
Last week, I was appalled when I saw a post on Facebook from Roland Willson, the West Moberly First Nations chief. He refers to B.C. Premier Christy Clark and BC Hydro CEO Jessica McDonald as “evil bitches” and gives them both the middle finger with a cartoon photo.
Roland’s comments are offensive and highly disrespectful. It disgusts me that a First Nations leader who has been elected since 2000 to represent his people would resort to such measures. ..... snipped
Since Prime Minister Harper appointed me to the Senate in 2008, I am privileged to represent the people of British Columbia within both the Senate and the Government Caucus.
I invite you to navigate my website for additional information about what we do in Ottawa and what it means to the people of British Columbia.
It has been and continues to be an honour for me to represent the people of British Columbia, and I look forward to continuing to serve for many more years ahead.
In the Senate Chamber, Canada’s 105 senators take part in formal debate on current affairs. Here, senators’ main job is to examine bills proposed by the Government. Bills in the Senate go through a similar process of debate as in the House of Commons, and a bill must pass the Senate before it can become law. Any senator may take part in the debate on a bill and propose amendments. In addition, senators may propose their own bills and initiate debates in the Chamber.Senators also work in committees, groups of 5 to 15 senators who focus on a specific policy area. These committees closely study bills sent to them by the Senate, calling witnesses to help them understand the legislation and its potential impact. Committees also conduct longer-term studies on topics in their area of interest.
