An unmarried boy and girl were allowed to share the same bed but a board was put between them. "Tr-c only difference be- tween the Liberal-XDP re- lationship is that there is no board today. That's the rea- son some legislation now lacks legitimacy. "Tnidcau and Lewis keep looking at each other and they mu.-'t be thinking that if they don't hang together, they'll hang separately.
