The entire parliamentary delegation for both Egmont and Richmond are approaching the capitol via Train. A message sent ahead of them says they wish to address the Senate.

The 1st Senator (leader) of Richmond Parish brings news.

He has taken the magic room (to which he calls "the box")

Quote
I've taken the Box. I've ordered it moved, after consultation with my friend in Egmont.
Currently, the Box is in Summerside, near the harbour. It is awaiting use by it's next rightful user, North Parish. Formerly, this was the only Box to not be located on a rail line, access was by sea, and difficult due to the shallow harbour at Princetown. Now, the Box is located in a major habour and, along the rail line.

I plan to move the Box to Linkletter. This is an idea that my friend in Egmont has come up with. I have spoken to all residents of Princetown, and all of them have moved to be with the Box and continue to administer it. I have spoken to the residents of Linkletter and all of them have agreed to my plan. Egmont has agreed to my plans as well.

I will move the box to Linkletter as outlined on the map. I will annex Prince Royalty's main portion, while Egmont annexes it's island. These areas are currently uninhabited. They will be added to lots 16 and 18. Princetown and Prince Royalty will cease to exist.

In return, I will hand over the town of Linkletter to the national government. Linkletter will become the new Prince Royalty, and, the new Capitol of Prince County. Residents of Linkletter are aware of what this means, and I have their support. Linkletter's assemblyman will attest to this. The Box will be placed on the rail line at the major concentration of Linkletter's population, which is near the border with Summerside. The Box will be administered by the Feds, as is at current. The only change shall be it's location. Now that it is located on a rail line, access will be much easier for all Prince County parishes.

I hope that my fellow Senators will see the wisdom of this proposal, and will accept it.

(OOC: I recommend that the Director of Halifax launch a full-scale invasion of Egmont immediately! And move on to Richmond afterwards. [/joke])

IC: I see no reason to deny the rightful officials of our government their right to address the Senate.

Is it possible for the Senate to expel Senators for illegal activity?

Also, St. David Parish straddles the real-life border of Prince and Queens county. To which does it belong, particularly for the purpose of the magic boxes?

It's been known to collect from both from time to time, as deficits can be made up for by the national government. Technically, it collects from Queens.

And yes, the Senate can expel members.

Firstly, I would remind the senators from Richmond and Egmont that taking such action without the consent of the national government is illegal, and you can be incarcerated should the national government wish to prosecute. You can also be expelled from the Senate.

Secondly, while the proposal seems sound to me, it is hardly my concern. As the issue affects all of Prince County's parishes, I will not support the proposal without the unanimous consent of all of Prince County's senators.

Thirdly, I move that a delegation representing North Parish be taken to the supposed new location of the box, under armed escort by the national military and North Parish militia. They will verify that the box is there. Upon doing so, we will turn on the Prince County box for a period of five minutes, whereupon North Parish will use the box, to determine if it is genuine.

The delegation from North Parish has spoken to the delegation from Richmond. They have made arrangements to get their items from the box. North Parish has decided to support this new move.

St. John Parish however is incensed. They demand that the entire government of Egmont and Richmond be arrested, and the National Government take over both parishes.

The senate is having trouble keeping itself in order.

I entirely echo the concerns of the esteemed Senator from Bedford.

I believe we should seriously consider the expulsion from the Senate of those who attempted to circumvent the authority of the National Government, especially if the senators from Richmond and Egmont held any malicious intent with their actions. At the very least, assuming the problem was only negligence and a lack of judgement, they should still at least be formally censured for their actions.

The 1st Senator from Egmont has made a startling revelation.

Quote
The only reason I am here is that I caught him in the act
Referring to the 1st Senator from Richmond
Quote
His original plan was to take the box to Summerside and keep it there, to allow access, but to have it in his parish. His 2nd Senator and I were the ones who came up with the Linkletter idea

Richmond's 2nd senator would confirm this
Quote
It was his idea. We, the entire delegation, had to talk him out of it. What we ended up with was a compromise.

St. John parish demands the 1st Senator from Richmond be removed from the Senate, at minimum, if not arrested.

Rumblings are that the Assembly delegation from Richmond has turned against it's leader. Rumour is that they plan to remove their dear leader from his position.

I call for the expulsion 1st Senator from Richmond, and also call for the establishment of an ad-hoc investigation committee (that would have power of arrest) in order to determine the scope of the wrongdoing and punishments for those responsible.

I second the proposal by the Senator from St. George. This indicates a clear abuse of power by the Senator from Richmond.

I urge the Assembymen from Richmond to keep cool heads. The Senate has already moved for the expulsion of the Leader of Richmond, and for further investigation into the matter.

Senators from both Egmont and North parish are upset at the idea that the leader of Richmond could be arrested, citing that proposals to extend the rail line to the box in Prince County have been "ignored in the Senate for months prior to this"

The (Emperor) Speaker suggests that a legal committee could be formed, but that there does exist a Supreme Court which could also look at the case.

He also points out that technically no law has been broken, as all laws referring to the Boxes only refer to someone preventing others from using it, which now that the Box is in use again, is no longer required.

Senators from North Paris meanwhile wait for the box to be re-activated.

BREAKING NEWS

The leader of Richmond Parish has resigned from his position and his Senate Seat.

(OOC - this ends the "crisis". Now is the "aftermath" where I'll say much less and you guys will - hopefully - say much more)

The speaker has boiled down the recent events to a series of motions.

Proposal 1001 - That the current de-facto arrangement and proposal, of moving Prince Royalty to Linkletter and dissolving the old Prince Royalty, be made official in law. (This would include turning the box back on, and undo the previous vote etc.)

Proposal 1002 - To charge the former leader of Richmond Parish with Treason.

The speaker opens the floor for debate on either of these.

It is clear that Senators from Richmond, Egmont, and North Parishes are in favor of moving Prince Royalty to Linkletter. I will withhold my vote on this matter until the Senators from Halifax give their opinions.

As for the second proposal, while I most strongly disapprove of the actions taken by the former leader of Richmond Parish, I do not think they equate to treason. I move to downgrade the charge to theft  of government property.

OOC - Halifax is a played parish. His Senators are under his control. His assemblymen however can be spoken to, and, they generally support this move, but will wait for further instruction from their leader.
