Andrew Scheer is standing by his vow to resume making partisan, patronage appointments to the Senate should the Conservatives form government after Oct. 21.

That would put an end to Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau's attempt over the past four years to transform the upper house into a less partisan, more independent chamber of sober second thought.

Shortly after he was chosen Conservative leader in 2017, Scheer told the CBC his choices for the Senate "would be Conservative senators who would help implement a Conservative vision for Canada that would improve the quality of life for Canadians."
