The guests at the dinner were treated to an informative and entertaining presentation by the Sagueny Herald, Dr. Forest Pass. This was followed with a proclamation of the Letters Patent by the Deputy Chief Herald, Bruce Patterson (in French) and Assiniboine Herald, Mr. Darrel Kennedy (in English). The proclamation was the first that Madame McLachlin had experienced, and thought it was a wonderful manner to present an individual's arms to the people.
Madame McLachlin is Canada's first woman to hold the position of Chief Justice of Canada. The Society looks forward to her future involvement with the Society. We are filled with gratitude and honour that she had accepted our invitation.
