Re: 1911 census
- Dear Lois:
I will send an ATI request to the National Archivist tomorrow, together
with a further $5. Incidentally, my original cheque for $5 to the Chief
Statistician has not yet been cashed.

- The access to information co-ordinator for the National Archives is
Julie Attallah. Her mailing address is: The National Archives of
Canada, 395 Wellington St., room 350, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0N3. You can
drop off your ATI form and $5 cheque at my office or home to go with
mine and others by courier since there is the possibility of a postal
strike. There is a link to the ATI form on our AFHS site. My office is
at #1400, 550- 6 Ave. SW. My home is at 38 Hallbrook Dr. SW (grey house
on the outside corner with bushy Russian Olive tree in the front).
This is the improved compromise solution now before the Senate as Bill S-18.
