With respect to the act, I think the reporting certainly addresses some of that concern. This would really only affect new judges, those who haven't been appointed as yet. All judges are subject to new judges' training, so we do think this should be the area where it's specifically addressed with this type of training and its mandate.
The concern we have is not so much with respect to this specific area. The concern is that once you open the door to mandating that those who are applying to be judges have certain types of training, essentially the slippery-slope argument can be used, not by your government but by other governments, for other training that may not have, again, a laudable reason to be in place.
We think all of this training, especially with respect to what the presenters at this time and the previous panel...should be taken into consideration and be taught on an ongoing basis. We think the training is absolutely necessary. We just have concerns about mandating it or the undertaking for those who are applying, because, again, it opens the door to other requirements for those applying to be judges in the future. That's where we have some concerns with regard to judicial independence.
With regard to the training, we think it is important. We do think that reporting is important as well.
