Senate leaders promise progress on committees, some of which have barely met since the last election
The Hill Times
Half of the Senate's committees have held only the odd organizational meeting since the last election, thanks to a combination of disputes, negotiations, and logistical obstacles, many related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The House of Commons sorted out its committees long ago.
Sen. Woo said that holding all-virtual meetings would be safer, more cost-effective, and allow the Senate to hold 20 per cent more meetings than it does now.
