Commentaires : From the Montreal Gazette - December 21, 1927 "With the co-operation of the various provincial governments in Canada the national committee for the celebration of the Diamond Jubilee of Confederation are placing a copper plaque, suitably framed, in every public and separate school building throughout Canada. The plaques are now in process of manufacture, and it is expected to have the bulk of them out by the end of the month. The plaque, which is attractively designed, carries the motto, "Canada Our Country" for the English speaking communities and "Canada Notre Patrie" for the French Canadian sections. It is twenty by fourteen inches and, besides the motto, the Canadian coat of arms is superimposed, surrounded by clusters of maple leaves. At the top is the word "Confederation" and at the sides "1867-1927", forming a permanent record of the historic event celebrated this year. The plaque was first suggested by the chairman of the National Executive, Hon. George P. Graham. The provincial prime ministers have been asked to arrange for some sort of patriotic unveiling ceremony in connection with placing the plaques in the schools."
