Gordon A. Watts, co-chair of the Canada Census Committee, recently pointed out that Senator Lorna Milne has written a book about her efforts to regain public access to historic census records that genealogists and historians believed they should have. Senator Milne waged a seven-year effort, culminating in the passage of Bill S-18. "Deeply Rooted" takes readers through the winding road that it took to overcome all the obstacles that were thrown in the way.
"Deeply Rooted - The story of one Senator's battle to preserve the Historic Census results" a very interesting read. The forward of the book can be found on Senator Milne's website at http://www.sen.parl.gc.ca/lmilne.
