moved for leave to introduce Bill C-466, an act to amend the Supreme Court Act (appointment of judges).

Mr. Speaker, the bill deals with the all important matter of judicial accountability. It deals only with the appointments to the Supreme Court of Canada. It would require parliament to review and approve the Prime Minister's proposed appointees for the country's top court.
