Canadian participation

From Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TAT-1

and has cited in the proposal:

The agreement to make the connection was announced by the Postmaster General on December 1, 1953. The project was a joint one between the General Post Office of the UK, the American Telephone and Telegraph company, and the Canadian Overseas Telecommunications Corporation. The share split in the scheme was 40% British, 50% American, and 10% Canadian. The total cost was about £120 million.

Canadian participation needs to be mentioned in the citation, not just the proposal.
