5 more Senators

With the addition of five more Senators, the Conservatives are the largest group in the Senate with 50 Senators, one the Senators, Rose-May Poirier will not be a Senator till February 28th.

The Conservatives lead the Liberals by 2. The other six Senators include one that is barred from the Senate, 2 Progressive Conservatives, and three independents. So the actual total number of Senators right now is 103 (shortly to 104), they split Liberal and allied 49 - Conservatives and right wing 53 - one truly independent.

Harper has a working majority in the Senate now, though not a totally loyal one.
