Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes an article in the National Post "Special Election 2004" published June 26, 2004 in which astrologer Priscilla Costello is asked to comment on his chart. The data was cited as being given to the newspaper staff by Layton. In August 2011 a source who wishes to remain anonymous wrote that he/she had obtained the same time from Layton himself.
