Her Honour, the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, O.C., O. Ont., Lieutenant Governor of Ontario

Magna Carta Canada is preparing a time capsule to preserve memories of this 2015 celebration of the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. As Magna Carta is commemorated only every 50 years, the time capsule will be opened in 2065. Examples of time capsule submissions may be seen here.
