Corbella: The Good Old Days

Calgary Herald – Coincidentally, on Friday as I started to write this, copy editor Ray Djuff came into my office and handed me a little poster he keeps near his desk made up of a portion of the Canadian Bill of Rights, July 1, 1960, by former prime minister John Diefenbaker. This is what Dief The Chief wrote: “I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.”
