    Yep, they did the job that, in an ideal world, you'd like to see an independant (but still unelected senate) do.

    Reviewed the legislation, gave it some thought, added some recommendations and then bowed to the will of the elected house when not all of their recommendations were adopted.

    Also, the provinces lobbied the senators hard to get their points across.

    The senate isn't perfect, but they get some kudos for the job they have done on this file.

    Shame the conservatives will rip up any thought of a independent senate once they get back in power. Would be nice to make the independent panel putting forward people for the senate a permanent thing.
