I have had an opportunity on one or more occasions to speak with the Attorneys General of the Atlantic region. While I would like most of those conversations to remain between the Attorneys General and me, broadly speaking there was a recognition that an appointment from Atlantic Canada was a convention, as we've talked about, but there was a general positive reception to opening up the process, ensuring that there's clarity around how the process will unfold, and an appreciation of having conversations. Again, I encourage the Attorneys General to bring forward and encourage candidates that they know of within their jurisdictions to apply for this esteemed position.
