Two more interventions in Senate court case
OTTAWA - Nunavut, and Newfoundland and Labrador, are the latest regions of Canada to weigh in on the federal government's Senate reference case before the Supreme Court.
Ottawa is asking the court for guidance on what it would take to reform the upper chamber and whether it can abolish the body without provincial consultation.
Nunavut's deputy attorney general argues Ottawa alone cannot set term limits for senators or abolish the Senate.
Newfoundland and Labrador also takes that position.
The rest of the provinces and territories have until Friday to submit factums to the Supreme Court.
So far only Newfoundland and Labrador, Nunavut, Manitoba and the federal government have filed their submissions to the court.
