Today, Saskatchewan's government will introduce legislation that will allow for Senate elections. More from the Leader-Post.

Justice Minister Don Morgan said the Senate election bill would allow for the cabinet to set a stand-alone election date.

But unless the federal government carried the cost for such a vote, he said, it's more likely the Senate election would be held in conjunction with the next provincial election in 2011 or the next federal vote, which is probably at least a year-and-a-half to two years away.

It's possible the Senate vote could also be held in connection with the 2009 municipal elections but that presents difficulties because the votes for rural and urban municipalities are held at different times, said Morgan.
