Yesterday, a group of parliamentarians and former Canadian diplomats wrote a letter to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, urging the release of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou.
The letter features the same inset gold border and black marker on each page. Coloured borders have carried special meaning in the past. For example, the black borders on mourning stationery indicated the author was in mourning, and American legislation is instantly recognizable from its thin red border. Does this choice of gold border and black page marker have any special significance in Canada or the Commonwealth? Why not just use a blank background?
