1-FIRST I SHOULD MENTION THAT THESE WERE NOT ONLY THE FIRST LETTERS I RECEIVED FROM THE OFFICES OF THE THEN-LEADERS OF CANADA'S THREE FEDERAL POLITICAL PARTIES ADDRESSED TO MY SENIOR ADVISER TO THE YEAR OF THE CHILD AUTHORITY, THEY WERE THE ONLY ONES I RECEIVED THEM FROM THEM ADDRESSED THAT WAY.
I ARRANGED THEM HERE IN ORDER OF RECEIPT.
THE DECEMBER 20, 1979 LETTER FROM THEN-NEW DEMOCRATIC PARTY LEADER ED BROADBENT'S OFFICE (THE ONLY ONE I ACTUALLY RECEIVED DURING THE "UNITED NATIONS INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF THE CHILD"), TAKE A BRIEF SIDESTEP HERE.
2-JUST SO VISITORS TO MY AWARD-WINNING WEBSITE KNOW, THE STATEMENT TO THE U.N. SECRETARY-GENERAL WAS DATED MAY 27, 1983, BUT THE DATE ON THE LIST WAS DATED APRIL 27, 1983.
IN THAT PERIOD NUMEROUS TIMES I DELAYED SUBMISSIONS TO CERTAIN AUTHORITIES IN ORDER TO GIVE OTHERS MORE TIME TO MOVE FORWARD IF CIRCUMSTANCES SUGGESTED SUCH A POSSIBILITY.
