In an historic move, three Canadian senators have been tossed from the Senate.
Senators Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Patrick Brazeau have been “suspended” (removed from their jobs for a period of time).
Members of the Senate voted to suspend the three until the next federal election, likely in 2015.
The vote was hotly debated and discussed.
Mike Duffy and Pamela Wallin had made impassioned speeches to the Senate, pleading their case and hoping to avoid being removed.
But in the end, the three senators were suspended.
