  1. I have been using your “Today In Labor History” in 2 group pages that I have started and administer for quite sometime now and very greatful to you and your effort to keep the memory of our existance alive.

Is this something that can be replicated with Canadian content to add to your work? Can you give me some insight as to how this could happen? Please keep up the great work. I and 1500 others look forward to your daily post,
