"That's like saying "I oppose universal suffrage unless we abolish slavery..."
Both need to be done. Just because one is done however does not preclude the other from being done.
I can't understand the logic that Dion is using here. Either you support electing senators or you don't. The attachment of conditions is usually done as an attempt to scuttle the argument instead of trying to clearly and openly debate the issue.
Just what is Mr. Dion afraid of?
