Hon. David Kilgour (Edmonton—Mill Woods—Beaumont, Ind.)
Mr. Speaker, I appreciate very much what the member for Scarborough Southwest was saying.
I have to make a confession. I worked for the Department of Justice many years ago and in fact took part in a constitutional case in front of the Supreme Court of Canada. I share the view of my colleague. It is appalling that a Minister of Justice who purports to be a lawyer would sign off on clause 3 and it is appalling that the cabinet would sign off on this clause.
I would ask the member for Scarborough Southwest if there is anything he has not had time to add on his excellent legal argument just now and which he would like to add now.
