Mr. Speaker, for all his huffing and puffing about the democratic deficit, the Prime Minister's words have turned out to be completely empty. He said in a 2002 Osgoode Hall speech:
--we must establish a process that ensures broad and open consideration of proposed candidates.
That is just hot air because today we learn he will not even let Canadians know the background of candidates for the Supreme Court.
Why does the Prime Minister continually break his promises?
