This was in the broader questions of their own experience with respect to diversity. We would have an ongoing conversation, but there is no question that there were opportunities for the candidates to discuss this in their own questionnaires—and their references were asked about this. It was kind of a fundamental value, this sensitivity to gender issues and issues beyond, because these are all issues that come before the court.
I'm sorry, because if I went back and looked at the question more specifically, I could give you a more specific answer, but I think there was certainly a consensus.
Incidentally, I think half of our committee members were women and very distinguished women. There was strong institutional support for recognizing openness to the equality and equal treatment of women under the law as part of our whole mandate.
