OTTAWA — Viewers won’t have to adjust their television sets anymore as the Senate says it has fixed a problem with one of their brand new cameras vibrating during broadcasts.
The Canadian Press reported last week that the Senate was forced to bring in a special engineer to deal with wobbly cameras as the Red Chamber started broadcasting for the very first time.
While the House of Commons has been televised for more than 40 years, the Senate has only started to broadcast meetings in its main chamber.
The decision coincided with the upper chamber being temporarily relocated into a former train station in downtown Ottawa while Centre Block is being renovated.
However, “natural vibrations and inherent movements” endemic to older structures had created problems with one camera in particular that wouldn’t stop shaking.
Senate spokeswoman Alison Korn says the problem was finally fixed late Friday, meaning Canadians won’t need to take anymore Gravol before tuning in.
