      Third Reading

      | Greetings All.
      | At 8:10 AM PDT this morning I received a telephone call from
      | Honourable Senator Lorna Milne.
      | She advised me that at 8:00 AM PDT MP Dominic LeBlanc, Deputy
      | Whip, rose and stated words to the effect that "If the Speaker
      | seek it, I believe he would have the unanimous consent of the
      House to
      | deem Bill S-18 -- An Act to amend the Statistics Act, to have
      | Third Reading" (not necessarily an exact quote). That consent
      | given.
      | Bill S-18 has now passed all necessary stages in both the
      Senate and the
      | House of Commons and all that remains to be done to make it law
      is for
      | it to receive Royal Assent. It is expected that assent will be
      | shortly.
      | There will be, I am sure, a great deal of cheering and
      celebrating when
      | that happens. It is believed that the Library and Archives of
      | has already scanned images of the 1911 National Census of
      Canada and
      | they should be available on line almost immediately.
      | We should now be able to spend our Summer researching the 1911
      | instead of continuing the fight to see them released.
      | Genealogists and historian owe a GREAT debt of thanks to the
      | perserverance and dedication of the Hon. Senator Lorna Milne,
      | whose support over the past several years, we would not have
      | this victory.
      | Those wishing to express their thanks to Senator Milne can do
      so through
      | her Policy Advisor, Jeff Paul at
      | PAULJ@...
      | On behalf of Muriel and myself, and all members of the Canada
      | Committee, I wish to express our thanks to all who have written
      | and email, signed petitions, called their Parliamentary
      | and generally supported our efforts to regain the public access
      | Historic Census records we beleived we were always entitled to.
      | expect that Muriel will likely be forwarding her own message of
      | appreciation as well.
      | We look forward to hearing some of the stories of success in
      | the 1911 Census records.
      | Happy Hunting.
