On November 4, 1981 the Minister of Justice, Jean Chretien, met with the Attorney General of Saskatchewan Roy Romanow and the Attorney General of Ontario Roy McMurtry in the kitchen of Ottawa’s Château Laurier hotel. The three worked out the details of an agreement which would lead to the patriation of the Constitution. The agreement would become known as the Kitchen Accord.
The Liberal Party of Canada (Manitoba) raffled off a framed copy of the Accord donated by former LPC(M) President Christian Monnin at the LPC(M) Birthday Party held on December 5th. The contest, which was held from the March until the draw on December 5th, was designed to encourage Manitoba Liberals to join the Victory Fund. Everyone in Manitoba who either joined the Victory Fund or increased their monthly Victory contributions during the contest period had their name entered into the draw. Thomas Wilding was the lucky winner.
The Victory Fund is the Libera Party’s monthly giving program. It works like this:
• You make small, monthly contributions of $10 dollars or more;
• Part goes to the Party and part goes to the riding of your choice.
Your personal contributions not only help the Liberal candidate in your riding but also allow the party to develop the policy that will help build a better Canada and share our vision from coast to coast to coast.
After a generous year-end tax credit of up to 75 per cent, your minimum $10 monthly donation to the Victory Fund will cost you as little as $2.50 per month, that’s less than a coffee and a muffin, to help build the Canada you want. If you haven’t done so already, please give to the Victory Fund and help build the Canada of tomorrow, today.
