Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, the matter of how best to have Canada's war effort appreciated in the United States is one to which we have been giving full consideration. No final decision has been reached as yet as to the particular method or places in which that aim may best be accomplished. Personally I cannot think of a better means of making Canada's war effort known in the United States and elsewhere than to have our own press give a full appreciation of it. I believe the press of the United States obtain most of their information with respect to Canada's war effort from what appears in our own press. However I do see the necessity of having information from that source supplemented, and the government is giving attention to the best possible methods.
