The backwater of P.E.I. abortion politics

How is it possible that in the year 2015, some Canadians still can't access abortion in their own province and are being forced to risk their health and safety? It's anti-choice politics all the way.

Will Harper stack the Senate if he thinks he'll lose the election?

At present, the standings in the Canadian Senate are:

Conxervatives - 51

(Independant) Liberals - 29

Independent - 5 (Including suspended Senators Brazeau, Duffy & Wallin)

Vacancies - 20

With the coming retirements of two more Conservatives between now and the October election date, this lends itself to an interesting question...!

If Harper thinks he'd going to lose the election, will he stack the Senate with Conservative appointees, like Pierre Trudeau did with Liberals in 1984 before he left office?
