Bonnie column.

Thank you again for an excellent issue.

This magazine surpasses itself with each edition.

On contributor Ken McGoogan's article "Kilting Canada," (June-July 2010) permit me to add the Declaration of Arbroath (1320) and Robert Burns's numerous poems to liberty and diversity that formed the fabric for Tommy Douglas' philosophy on cultural equality in universal health care.

I look forward to McGoogan's forthcoming new book, modestly called How the Scots Invented Canada.

I additionally recommend to all readers of Scottish heritage The Mark of the Scots, by Duncan Bruce, and the classic book by Clark Blaise on Canada's time zones called Time Lord. Both cover cultural diversity, the hallmark of Scottish tradition.

As a Scot, I am privileged to teach new immigrants the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
