Revising History: the patriation round, 1981

At The Canadian Encyclopedia blog, historian Stephen Azzi reports on Brian Peckford's declaration in his recent memoirs (and on the TCE Blog here) that the decisive player in the patriation discussions of November 1981 was... Brian Peckford.

Azzi is identified as the recent reviser of the "Patriation of the Constitution" article for the online encyclopedia.  The blog posting does not, however, reports just what was revised in the article or how influential Peckford's account was on the changes that were made.

Gotta admire Peckford's (or his publisher's) eye for a title.
