Suggestions of theory to study

Prime Minister Trudeau has appointed an Independent Advisory Board for Senate Appointments guided by public, transparent, non-partisan and merit-based criteria to identify highly-qualified people to provide him with non-binding recommendations.

As a result, an increasing number of Senators are sitting as ‘independents’, and are not as beholden to the government as senators were when they were directly selected by the Prime Minister.

Does this provide an adequate check on the power of the Prime Minister, and if not why not?
