Sir LOMER GOUIN:

If we were merely asked to fill a vacancy in Saskatchewan or any other province, we would probably act in a similar manner; but, in this instance, we have a statute passed by the Saskatchewan legislature providing for the appointment of an additional judge for a court in that province, and we are now implementing that legislation. I do not see how we can refuse to do so.

Sir LOMER GOUIN:

Mr. Archibald's salary is included in the Estimates, which were prepared before he died. We do not, however, intend to replace him by the appointment of a new man; his place will be taken by one of the officials of the department. We are therefore saving $3,600 in his salary, and $600 on Mr. Ahearn's salary, br $4,200 in all.

Sir LOMER GOUIN:

I must say that I was told by the Attorney General of Saskatchewan that there is need of such an appointment. As to the position my hon. friend takes with respect to Ontario, it is quite different in this respect: in that instance there was no discussion between the Attorney General and the Minister of Justice, or between the provincial government and the federal government. Both agreed that there were too many judges and that no more should be appointed, but in this case we have a request from the provincial government that an additional judge be appointed for the Court of Appeal. Unless we are to say to the Saskatchewan government that we cannot accept their representation as to the need for such judge we have to make the appointment.
