 The Honourable David Tkachuk, SenatorChair, Internal Economy, Budgets and Administration The Senate of CanadaOttawa, ON KiA OA4 The Honourable George Furey, SenatorDeputy Chair, Internal Economy, Budgets and Administration The Senate of CanadaOttawa,ON KiA OA4I read with interest a May 14, 2013 from Postmedia which states that your committee is in the processof obtaining a legal opinion on residency requirements for Senators. Ithink this isan excellent move,given the many serious questions being recently raised by Canadians about whether certain Senatorshave met their Constitutional requirements for holding office.I note with interest comments from the Honourable Senator Marjory LeBreton on May 11
th,
where shestated that she had a legal opinion saying that simply by filing out adeclaration, aSenator isautomatically considered qualified.I have written to her separately asking for her to disclose the legalopinion she referenced when making those comments.Icontrast the view of Senator Lebreton with that of former Senator Lowell Murray, who stated onFebruary 9th 2013:
 If Mike Duffy
or 
anybody else being a senator from Prince Edward Island 
or 
Nova Scotia
or 
Quebec files anincome tax return stating that they're resident of Ontario ,then they're finished.
