It certainly is good news, Judy. Congratulations to all those who worked so
hard for this to happen.

Obviously, Jean, it will never happen in the UK unless the same amount of
work is done by residents there.

In my experience, nothing ever happens in parliament unless the sitting
members think that there are votes in it. So, if this is an important issue
with residents of the UK, then you should copy whatever has been done in
Canada to make this happen.

I would happily join in such a campaign, but I doubt that my voice would
mean much - as a resident of Australia I don't vote in UK elections, and
therefore, my opinions would count for nought with politicians there.

Please accept my apologies if you receive this message more than once but we
here in Canada have just received exciting news

The Bill to open up the 1911 census records has passed all readings and is
just waiting for final desent. This is fantastic news to all those who
might have had rellies come to our great land.

A HUGE thank you is given to all the people that worked relentlessly for
approximately two years - sending numerous letters etc. to our MPs and
keeping us informed on the website etc - this is indeed a very happy day !!
