The HOUSE of COMMONS
The SENATE- Senatus Populusque Canadensis -
The House of Commons seats up to 374 (338 members at present), With a 30% reduction in population anticipated, seats needed would be reduced to 200, or 160 if representation was population-based on a 1;200,000 basis. A new section might be introduced to accommodate interpreters/translators. 'The Senate' seats only 105, so this would be too cramped to serve the new 'Senators' - it might be better used for meetings of the Cabinet. Members of the government currently sit on the benches on the speaker's right, while members of the opposition occupy the benches on the speaker's left. This of course will no longer apply.
