I was just going to say that obviously we heard from witnesses who were concerned about this. I think everybody agrees the conscience rights should obviously be protected, and we had to find a way that was appropriate in a Criminal Code amendment to do that. I believe inserting these words into the preamble is the appropriate way, especially since we dealt with it by using the word “compel” and not limiting it to this wording in the bill itself. I believe it was a collaborative effort in order to get the wording that everybody can agree with.
