I owe you a letter. Or two. Maybe, three. Because you always shared time, over the years, to write me letters about something I wrote in the newspaper. You are always so kind and encouraging. Sure, we’ve had many laughs: I am particularly proud t I have never appeared before you in your role as Chief Justice of Court of Queens Bench of Alberta. v But we’ve also had some heart-to-heart chats. I have always admired the things you have done … the way you carry yourself. That’s why I was so thrilled with today’s announcement. Congratulations, my friend, on receiving the Order of Canada.
