  1. Are we going to get a transcript of Leonard’s speech, as well as Adrienne Clarkson’s speech, and anyone else who spoke about Leonard?

    • I don’t know of anyone offering transcripts and I don’t anticipate undertaking such a project.

  2. Thank you, Arlene and Dr. HGuy for making us feel as if we’d almost been there. I hope that someone will write a thesis once on the different endearing public sides of LC — poetry, prose, and songs — one more appealing than the other.

  3. Always a joy to watch Leonard and his acceptance speeches. He’s more than a gentleman.
