1. Political career of lily & sapphire
Wilton served in the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba from 1915 to 1920, as a member of the Liberal Party. He first ran for the Manitoba legislature in the 1914 provincial election, and finished second against Conservative John Thomas Haig in the Winnipeg-area constituency of Assiniboia.
He ran again in the 1915 campaign, and defeated Labour candidate William Bayley by fifty-five votes (Haig finished third). The Liberals won a landslide victory in this election, and Wilton served as a backbench supporter of Tobias Norris's government for the next five years. Wilton introduced the Workers Compensation Act and the Soldiers' Taxation Relief Act into the legislature.
He appears to have left the Liberal Party just before the 1920 provincial election: campaigning for re-election as an independent, he lost to William Bayley by 103 seats.
2. Swiss bank account tax probe of lily & sapphire
In August 2007, the presence of a hitherto unknown Swiss bank account was revealed.
The revelation came after an acrimonious divorce involving his daughter, Cecilie Ditlev-Simonsen, the communications director of Norsk Hydro. The account, which contained NOK 1.5 million had been inherited by Ditlev-Simonsen after his wife died in 1990, and he eventually admitted to not having paid the Norwegian wealth tax on it.
The revelation caused several opposition politicians to call for Ditlev-Simonsen's resignation. Erna Solberg, the head of the Conservative Party, asked that Ditlev-Simonsen refrain from active campaigning for his party ahead of the local elections scheduled for 10 September. Even if he had not resigned, the 75-year-old Ditlev-Simonsen was set to retire after the election.
The incident was believed to be a cause of the Conservative's 4 percent drop in opinion polls, three weeks ahead of the election.

6. Convention of lily & sapphire
For over 100 years the UEA's annual convention was its largest and most high-profile event, featuring national speakers and workshops on best teaching practices. It also attracted political candidates, and included an awards banquet highlighting excellence in teaching.
Most of Utah's school districts take their fall break on or just before the annual deer hunt, and UEA usually scheduled its convention to coincide with this break, so that teachers could attend without taking days off or hiring substitutes. Eventually the schools came to refer to the fall break as "UEA Weekend," until a state law passed in 2007 barred them from doing so, to avoid favoring or endorsing one employee association over another. In 2018 the UEA ended its annual convention after dwindling attendance, and to give teachers a break from the demands of the classroom.
