A reformed House of Commons and Senate

Houze of Commons seats apportioned based on provincial/territorial populations and party seats distributed through some form of proportional representation.

House of Commons seats: 330.

Senate seats apportioned based on the square roots of the provincial/territorial populations and party seats distributed through some form of proportional representation.

Senate seats: 50 x 2 = 100.

If we choose to have an elected Senate, it will likely not lead to the paralysis of Parliament as some Canadians will believe. Even if senators are elected at different times from members of the House of Commons, there will still be enough flexibility to get both houses to pass parliamentary bills.
