Why Harper corrupted the Senate. He saw he had no choice as he was facing the gravest threat to his reign as PM. He was saddled with a minority government & the NDP, Bloc & Liberals were threatening a coalition to end his rule. He quickly prorogued parliament, realized the Senate would likely approve a coalition & opted for a rare move to appoint 18 senators just before Christmas, 2008. Harper saw how useful the Senate could be in his retaining power & creating a permanent ruling Con party.
