Old and new sponsors bring PN&N
PARLIAMENTARY NAMES & NUMBERS wouldn't be possible without
So with gratitude on your behalf we welcome back PNN sponsors Imasco
Ltd. (see listing on page L-114), The Mutual Group (page L-141)
and Southam Newspaper Group (page L-190). Each will contribute to
the continuity of this much-praised feature.
Imasco's backing goes back many years. It's always a pleasure dealing
with Louise Rousseau, Imasco's Manager, Special Projects, Public
Affairs. The Mutual Group is a newer backer. We value the friendly
support of External Relations Manager John Dinner.
Southam employees across Canada will be pleased, we think, to see
that the Southam Newspaper Group chooses PNN backing as one way
to contribute to higher quality journalism in the country. Tim Peters,
Vice-President of Human Resources at the Group, is the effective
executive we've come to admire especially.
We also welcome on your and the other sponsors' behalf new PNN sponsor
Call-Net Ltd. (see Call-Net's listing on page L-24 and its advertisement
on the outside back cover).
Call-Net and sources have had a symbiotic relationship for several
years. Call-Net, incorporated in January 1986, is a fast-growing
retailer of long-distance services. The company purchased a listing
in sources early on and has found itself in the news a great
When we signed up for its service we were truly impressed with
its customer-satisfaction approach. Last year this impelled us to
write an unsolicited letter of congratulations.
We regret the loss of long-time sponsors DuPont Canada Inc. (page
L-94) and Dofasco Inc. Dofasco, due to a financial situation of
unprecedented severity, suspended its listing which had run from
our very first edition 15 years ago. It also suspended its display
advertisement which had been present uninterruptedly since 1980.
Beginning with Ron Dennis (with whom we had a reunion at the opening
of the new Toronto Press Club premises in early June) and continuing
with Dave Follis, our visits to Dofasco's Hamilton headquarters
have been business and personal highlights.
The Canadian steel industry has been hard hit with troubles, mostly
not of its own making (although we could never figure out why it
got enthusiastic about "free trade"). We look forward
to renewed health in this sector of our economy and trust that when
this time comes Dofasco will resume its support of Canadian journalism
At least two more sponsors are needed to bring PNN to a break-even
position financially. Here's a moderately-priced golden opportunity
for organizations to make a wise, appreciated investment in better-quality
journalism and Canada's democratic fabric.
