Manitoba Sen. Marilou McPhedran resigned today from the Independent Senators Group (ISG) just ahead of a private hearing to decide if she would be expelled from the largest bloc in the upper chamber.
McPhedran tweeted that she left the Senate group to better focus her time and energy “on issues that really matter,” such as her efforts to lower the federal voting age to 16 and “the modernization and transparency of the Senate as an institution.”
