Report to Cabinet on Constitutional Discussions / The Kirby Memorandum [copy] (August 30, 1980).

File consists of a copy of the Kirby Memorandum provided to the TWU Archives by the Privy Council Office in Ottawa in March, 2015, in response to a request from an archival researcher who found that the "original" held by the TWUA was missing pages 7, 9, and 10.
Via email communication, the Deputy Director of the Access to Information and Privacy Office stated "Please note that we did not release the report in full. Certain information was protected pursuant to sections 14 (federal-provincial relations) and 23 (solicitor-client privilege)."
So while this copy does include the pages missing from the TWUA original, there are redacted sections scattered throughout (including on pages 7 and 10). Furthermore, pages 45-54 and pages 61-62 were "withheld."
