Debates of the Senate (Hansard)

3rd Session, 37th Parliament,
Volume 141, Issue 22

Monday, March 29, 2004
The Honourable Dan Hays, Speaker


The Honourable Gérald-A. Beaudoin

Hon. Mobina S. B. Jaffer: Honourable senators, I, too, rise to pay tribute to Senator Beaudoin.

Senator Beaudoin, I have served with you on many committees — Bill C-36, the Human Rights Committee and the Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee. I learned so much. Thank you.

You had a passion for laying the foundation by seeing that everything was constitutionally sound. Yes, often your questions were predictable, but it certainly helped us all to focus on the Constitution and the Charter.

You will be difficult to replace on our committees. Your work will be missed, but most of all your presence in the committees will be missed.

We will miss you greatly. Thank you.
