Another reason to scrap the Senate

The Senate committee that blew big bucks on a weeks stay in a luxury hotel in Dubai after claiming that their trip into Afghanistan was cancelled, "at the last minute" has been caught in a lie.
Senator Colin Kenny, the committee chair, was told it was impossible to travel to Afghanistan before the four senators left Ottawa.

A document obtained by CTV News shows the military met with Kenny in his office on Sept. 2 -- one week before the senators reached Dubai.
It's far past time to shut down this luxurious Retirement Vacation Home for broken down political hacks and bagmen.

You'll recall that Liberal Senator Colin Kenny is the guy with personalised senate plates on his Jaguar, who wants to raise Senators office budgets from $135,000 to $200,000.
