Congratulations on the June-July issue of magazine! Fifty years is quite the milestone. In all the years I have read the magazine, I have always found it interesting. It may even have inspired me to convince an organization for which I served on the executive — Western Canada Water — to let me create our own quarterly magazine in 1996 to serve our members, now numbering over 4,000.

Something in the June-July issue caught my eye. On page 25 it is noted that the first Schreyer Award was presented in 1981. But then on page 32, the story on the CN Tower states that it re – ceived the Schreyer Award in 1977. In a time warp, maybe? W. H. (Bill) Brant, P. Eng. Genivar, Winnipeg

Editor’s Note. The error is ours. The article on page 32 should have said that in 1977 the CN Tower won an Award of Excellence, not a Schreyer Award. The Schreyer Awards did not exist until 1981.
