Re. Request to the Honourable Peter Gordon MacKay, Minister of Justice of Canada and the Honourable Steven Blaney, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness asking that a pardon be granted to Wilbert Coffin

Dear Sir:

In reply to my request to you for the pardon of Wilbert Coffin, Mr. Scullion of your Department sent me a letter. It seems that my request has not been understood. Given the thorough study that I have made of the Coffin affair, I never came to the conclusion that Wilbert Coffin was a victim of miscarriage of justice. You will find enclosed the letter I received from Mr. Scullion and my response. To avoid further misunderstanding, I also include a copy of my request to you for the pardon of Wilbert Coffin.

Lately, the Queen granted pardon to Alan Turing. You possess, Sir, that same power.

Hoping that you will close this file once and for all and relieve the Coffin family by granting pardon to Wilbert Coffin, I am, Sir,

Yours truly,

Clément Fortin, retired lawyer

40, de la Marquise Street,

Saint-Sauveur, Québec
