OTTAWA — Patrick Brazeau has been put on a leave of absence, with the Senate saying the move was needed to protect “the dignity” of the upper chamber.
There was no debate on the motion Tuesday afternoon.
Brazeau, who surprised his peers by showing up in the first place, stood up and immediately walked out the front door of the chamber.
Now an independent after being kicked out the Conservative caucus last week, Brazeau had taken his new chair, in the back corner of the red chamber, close to the door. No one sat beside him, although most senators appeared to be present.
He retains his title and salary, but is severely limited in his ability to access Senate resources and take part in debates.
