| 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
| deem Bill S-18 -- An Act to amend the Statistics Act, to have

| 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

| 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.
