Senate of Canada
The Senate of Canada (French: Sénat du Canada) is a component of the Parliament of Canada, along with the House of Commons and the Monarch (represented by the Governor General). The Senate is modeled after the House of Lords and consists of 105 Members appointed by the Governor General on the advice of the Prime Minister. Seats are assigned on a regional basis, with each of the four major regions receiving 24 seats and the remainder of the available seats being assigned to smaller regions. — Wikipedia
