To Whom It May Concern:
I am emailing you with a humble request. From 18th November to 25th November, His Highness the Aga Khan will visit Canada at the invitation of the Government of Canada, to celebrate his Golden Jubilee. During the Aga Khan’s visit to Canada he will engage in consultations with Federal Government officials and he will also meet with Provincial Government and civic leaders.
In 2005, Her Excellency the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson conferred upon His Highness, Canada ’s highest formal civilian tribute (The Order of Canada) in recognition of his life of generosity, of thoughtful stewardship, and of benevolent spiritual direction. For further information about His Highness the Aga Khan and the Aga Khan Development Network please visit http://www.akdn.org.
To commemorate this special occasion of the Aga Khan’s Golden Jubilee visit to Canada , I am emailing to request whether it would be possible to illuminate the CN Tower with the Aga Khan’s colours of red and green from 18th November to 25th November? Perhaps red and green followed by a gold illumination (for the Golden Jubilee)? I am certain that such a symbolic gesture would create a lot of positive media attention and would also generate additional visitors to the CN Tower as the city will host a large number of international visitors who are in town to celebrate the joyous occasion.
If you are not the intended recipient of this email, please could you kindly forwarded it to the person responsible for the illumination of the CN Tower. I hope that you are able to light up the Toronto skyline in the same way that His Highness represents a shinning light for the world!

Thanks to all who made the CN Tower shine. We traveled from Houston and were very impressed. Also thanks to all our volunteers who did an extraordinary job. It must have been a logistical challenge for our council and volunteers to organize this event at the Rogers Center. Their devotion to Hazar Imam truly brought the best out of them.
