The Conservative-controlled Senate is poised to kill a bill that would have protected former Nortel employees from losing their long-term disability benefits.

Conservative senators have used their majority on the Senate’s banking, trade and commerce committee to recommend that the upper house not proceed with the bill.

The chamber, dominated by Tories thanks to a raft of recent appointments by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, is likely to accept the committee’s report.
