Contents

  Early life

Brown farmed in Kathyrn, Alberta and was a land development consultant. He attended Mount Royal College at the University of Oklahoma. He is married to Alice Lancaster (1965) and has a daughter, Angela Susan.

  Campaign for triple E senate

Brown is the only person to run in all of the first three of Alberta's senatorial elections. In 1989 and 2004 he ran for the Alberta Progressive Conservative Party, and in 1998 he ran for the Reform Party of Alberta. He was elected Senator in Waiting in 1998 and re-elected in 2004. Brown is the only person ever to be elected to a second term as Senator in waiting.

He has been campaigning for an elected Canadian Senate for over twenty years. He is national chair of the Canadian Committee for a Triple-E Senate, and has become the symbol for the cause. He has been mentioned in countless Hansard transcripts in legislatures across the country, as well as the federal Parliament and Senate.

He first gained fame for his cause, when he used his tractor to plow "Triple E Senate or else"[1] into his neighbour's barley field.

  Senatorial career

Prime Minister Stephen Harper promised to advise the Governor General to appoint Brown to the next available Senate seat from Alberta, according to comments made in the House of Commons April 18, 2007. The announcement came after long serving senator Dan Hays, announced that he intended to vacate his seat in the Senate at the end of June 2007.[2]

Brown was appointed to the Canadian Senate on July 10, 2007.[3] He will serve six years until mandatory retirement.

Brown became the second person in Canadian history, after Stan Waters, to be appointed to his Senate seat following a provincial senator in waiting election. Brown chose to sit with the Conservative Party of Canada caucus (federal party) though he ran under the Progressive Conservative banner(provincial party counterpart) in the Alberta Senate election.

  Awards

In 2005, Brown was a recipient of the Alberta Centennial Medal. The award was given to notable Albertans who have made a lasting contribution in the province over the past 100 years.[4]

  Views

Brown does not acknowledge the scientific consensus on anthropogenic climate change identifying himself as a denier.[5]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
