When Scouts Canada went coed in 1991, the programme was not changed- a
few years later they got around to updating one word in the Scout law (`A
Scout is wise in the use of his resources' becomes `use of all resources').
The programme doesn't need to be changed to go coed. People are looking
for the *Scout* programme, and that's what they want when they join
*Scouts* Canada. It's fine as it is and can accomodate a co-ed programme.
