Governor General's Literary Awards[edit]

Dear SimonP, thanks for initiating Wikipedia's numerous entries about Canada's Governor General's Literary Awards. If this is a topic you are still interested in pursuing, you might like to have a look at a series of articles that a colleague and I have published in the peer-reviewed academic journal, _Papers of the Bibliographical Society of Canada_. In these articles (http://unit8.ok.ubc.ca/__shared/assets/2014irvineggawards48741.pdf) we have done our best to correct the numerous errors contained in the original list of Governor General's Award winners released by the Canada Council. (You will see that the list has now been removed from the Canada Council website.) Thanks again for your interest in this topic. Sincerely, Andrew Irvine
