I have delved into my Archives, to pull out this piece of history. Early in 2005 I welcomed Canada’s top diplomat to the new City of Wolverhampton. I had been instrumental in the invitation to the High Commissioner, and it still ranks today amongst the most esteemed visits I have ever organised.
I am very proud of the good links it fostered at the time.
I had made arrangements for the High Commissioner of Canada to visit the City of Wolverhampton. We were just five years into the title of ‘City’. We were at that time Britain’s newest City, even though we had a history and heritage that goes back more than 1,000 years.
It was an excellent day and the High Commissioner spent the very best part of that day with us.
It still ranks amongst the most esteemed visits I have ever organised. I am very proud of the good links it fostered at the time, with the Country of my birth.
