As an overarching statement, individuals have the right to be heard and to go through the justice system benefiting from both official languages. I was pleased to see $2 million was provided to court administration services to further assist in making decisions available in both languages. You spoke about it, and again I'm really proud of the process the Prime Minister put in place to ensure that appointments to the Supreme Court of Canada are incredibly meritorious, diverse, and that all are functionally bilingual. We certainly received all those things with the Prime Minister's appointment of Mr. Justice Malcolm Rowe.
