Senate scandal makes unlikely allies: Tom Mulcair and Brad Wall to meet
Sep 6, 2013 / 1:20 pm
REGINA - Two political leaders who have butted heads over the oilsands and the economy have become unlikely allies in a push to abolish the Senate.
Federal NDP Leader Tom Mulcair is scheduled to meet Monday with Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall in Regina.
They are expected to talk about the state of the Canadian economy, the Senate, health care and the federal skills training program.
The two leaders have both said the Senate â€” which has been rocked by an expense scandal â€” should be scrapped.
Mulcair and Wall starting trading barbs in May 2012 when Mulcair said the booming oil sector was hurting other parts of the economy by driving up the dollar.
Earlier this year, Wall accused Mulcair of betraying Canadian interests when the NDP leader criticized Ottawa's environmental record and the Keystone XL pipeline while speaking in Washington.
