My hon. friend who has said that it was in a moment of weakness, should have quoted another adage even older than that: ' Consistency, thou art a
jewel.' If there is any man in Canada who should not have a single word to say about promotion from an inferior court to a superior court, that man is the present hon. leader of the opposition ; because I believe that that was one of the few cases, if not the only case, in the Dominion of Canada in which a county court judge has been promoted to the position of a superior court judge.
