On wake-up calls
The CP gives Harper far too much credit, claiming that he'll wake up the sleeping Senate with his plan for elections over the next few years. While Harper may have awoken the Senate, surely the credit goes to both his campaign challenge against it to keep him in check, followed by his decision to make it the sole body with the ability to question a cabinet minister who couldn't be bothered to face an election. And any future elections will merely give the current Senators a chance to point out whether or not they've met the challenge.
