Brazeau, 37, was absent for 25% of the 72 sittings between June 2011 and April 2012, the Senate attendance register shows.
Brazeau wasn’t just missing from the Senate floor. Between June 2011 and April 2012, he also missed 65% of meetings at the aboriginal peoples committee on which he sits.
He was away for 31% of the meetings of the human rights committee, where he is deputy-chair.
The senator, appointed in 2008 by Prime Minister Stephen Harper....
His record of attendance is poor enough. Calling the reporter who reported on his attendance a bitch is uncalled for and classless.
The state of the Senate under Harper is pathetic, especially considering his broken promise to reform it.
