I have a question for you, Minister.
There have been a number of ways that Supreme Court justices have been appointed in the past. For the most part, the Prime Minister chooses somebody and that's it. He or she can get advice from whoever he or she wants to, and then that person is appointed.
In the previous couple of Parliaments, there was a slightly different process. Members of the justice committee came together and made recommendations with respect to the candidates. I have to tell you, I was quite impressed with it at the time. I was a justice minister for a number of these applications, and I thought it was a good way to involve people who are here as representatives of the people, of Parliament, and members of this committee.
You said that you believe that process was opaque. I'm not sure whether you're referring to that exactly, or what. Give me your thoughts. Did you have problems with the process that was in place for a number of the justices of the Supreme Court by having members of this committee look at those applications?
