SENATE DEBATES — December 9, 1980
LEGAL AND CONSTITUTIONAL AFFAIRS
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ENTITLED “CERTAIN ASPECTS OF THE CANADIAN CONSTITUTION”—INQUIRY STANDS
On the Inquiry of Senator Lamontagne:
That he will call the attention of the Senate to the Report of the Standing Senate Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs entitled: “Certain Aspects of the Canadian Constitution”, tabled in the Senate on 26th November, 1980.
Hon. Royce Frith (Deputy Leader of the Honourable senators, it is Senator Lamontagne’s intention to proceed with this inquiry on Thursday of this week. It will be recalled from a previous discussion that it is our hope to have Senator Lamontagne speak to this inquiry on an occasion when the Senate members of the Special Joint Committee on the Constitution will be able to be present to hear his speech. With that in mind, we intend to discuss with the whips and house leaders the possibility of having Senator Lamontagne’s intervention on this inquiry made before Question Period on Thursday. This will enable those honourable senators who serve on the Special Joint Committee on the Constitution to hear Senator Lamontagne’s speech, and still attend that committee’s meeting on Thursday.
