The hon. member who has just spoken must have seen my notes, because he has said many of the things I had intended to say. I should not like any hon. member or anyone outside the house to think that I am opposed to the judiciary. Some of them are among my personal friends. In fact I have many good friends among them, although they hold political views different from those I hold. I respect their views, and I hope they do the same for mine.
The hon. member who has just taken his seat referred to the political appointments in Great Britain, to which reference was first made by the hon. member for Stanstead. It will be noted that while they are political appointments, it is not always a process of appointing political friends.
