Hi Andrew,

Thanks very much for following up on those and getting back to me: I have an 
interest in these Canadian laws and orders and been digging on Yukon and other 
sites a number of times.

I realize that unfortunately many of these laws and orders are short documents 
that could easily be missed stuck to others in files, or during scanning, and 
lost to posterity, or may turn up unexpectedly elsewhere at some later date.

I will add this OIC to my personal archive of Canadian and Yukon tz history and 
pass it along to the tz maintainers who may publish it on the public repositories.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

[PMed to maintainers as received off-list - hope you guys don't mind?
Please credit Andrew for any publication.]
