View the President's Schedule

Get away day. Brief staff time. Ken & Colin—nothing very important. Talked a little about the coup in Haiti. Then to M.T.C.C. for plenary session—scheduled 2 hrs. This was for agreement on communiqué. Mitterrand gave us a battle over a couple of words & the 2 hours became almost 3 before he could be satisfied. Then back to the hotel to get Nancy & on our way to Ontario Art Gallery. Formal meeting & reception with Gov. Gen. of who is a lovely friendly woman. We had our final summit luncheon as her guests. Then we were on our way to Roy Thornson Hall for reading of communiqué by Brian Mulroney. Back to Hotel for like 10 min’s. then a briefing for my press conf. which took place in ball room of hotel. It went well but there were virtually no questions on the summit. The Mulroneys came to get us to take us to dinner meeting (no dinner for us). I spoke to Empire Club & Toronto club—1st Am. Pres. to ever do so. Then it was off to the airport & a 1 hr. & 5 min. flight to Andrews A.F.B. & Marine 1 to the W.H.
