Summer BBQ's and Senate reform, they just go together, don't they?

What better topic to raise with Canadians in the summer months, hey? Good luck with this one, brainiac Conservative strategists:
Conservatives are promising to take their beefs with the Liberal-dominated upper chamber to the public this summer after a Tory bill to limit Senate terms was shelved indefinitely.
...
"We'll have a lot of time back in our constituencies and we'll have a lot of time to discuss that with our constituents," Government House Leader Peter Van Loan said Wednesday.
Now I can see this being a big hit at lawyer Van Loan's summer festivities, but for the rest of us...I think we'll give the arcane Senate composition and reform efforts a big honkin' pass...:)
