Harper Appoints Five Canadian Senators

Prime Minister Stephen Harper said today he’s appointed five people to Canada’s Senate, increasing his hold on the upper chamber.

Harper appointed Doug Black, a senior partner with Fraser Milner Casgrain LLP, to a seat representing Alberta. He also named David Wells, who has been deputy chief executive officer of the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board, as well as Lynn Beyak from Ontario, Denise Batters from Saskatchewan, and Victor Oh, the founding chairman of the Canada-China Business Communication Council, from Ontario.

With the appointments, which are effective immediately, the Conservatives have 65 seats in the 105-seat chamber, compared with 36 Liberals, one Progressive Conservative, and two independents. There is still one vacant seat.

Harper made the announcements in a statement on his website.
