Canadian Political Reform is Looking in the Wrong Place

How are advocates of reforming the Canadian senate like the Nazis in Raiders of the Lost Art?  They are looking in the wrong place (and, no, I am not calling them Nazis).  Let a friend of mine rant for me via my storifying of his tweets.

I cannot disagree....  The big challenge in Canada is that any significant reform runs into the same problem--constitutional reform might stir up Quebec separatism, so let's leave things along. And, to be fair, things in Canada are not awful, so doing nothing might be better than trying to fix it.  On the other hand, complacency is not usually a winning strategy either.
