Bill Waiser and Jim Miller spoke to a symposium on the history of the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan sponsored by the Canadian Studies Programme at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies of the University of London, on Friday, March 18. On March 22nd, Jim gave a paper in the Canadian Studies Seminars series of the Institute for the Study of the Americas, also at the University of London, on "Compact, Contract, Covenant: Canada's Treaty-Making Tradition with Aborignal Peoples." Meanwhile, on March 21st, Bill gave a seminar on his forthcoming Saskatchewan centennial book in the Department of American and Canadian Studies at the University of Birmingham. Jim and Bill both insist, in a suspiciously strenuous fashion, that there is no truth to the scurrilous rumour going around that a great deal of time was also devoted to the continuing search for the perfect beer and the perfect Indian restaurant.
