 Margret Kopala - Article, Ottawa Citizen, May 29, 2004
For Quebec and Alberta, and for the Council of the Federation, this is a significant step with potential for restoring legitimacy and historical integrity to Canada’s Senate.
First, transforming the Senate into The House of the Federation (1978) was based on recommendations made by the Pepin-Robarts Task Force on Canadian Unity who used the German Bundesrat model and recommended provincial governments appoint senators.
Some academics argue that giving the Senate nearly equal powers to the House of Commons is incompatible with the principle of responsible government (government is responsible to the elected representatives of the people).

For example, the Senate, President and Supreme Court could agree that four SC justices are going to resign en masse; that their replacements will be two conservative Republicans, one moderate Republican (picked by Olympia Snowe, for example) and one Democrat of the Democrats' choosing; and that there would be no filibuster of the confirmation vote.
I would have the Republicans in the Senate call this issue before any other nomination, so that the offices of Secretary of State and (possibly) Secretary of Defense are sitting vacant while the Democrats filibuster the Supreme Court nominee and their continued vacancy can be blamed on the Democrats.
It would be profoundly unconservative to appoint a recess nominee to the Supreme Court, and especially to appoint a non-Supreme Court, non-Appeals Court justice to the Chief Justice's position.
