Description
An understanding or even an alliance [between the United States and Canada] may indeed be necessary for the preservation of that North American civilization which is our joint possession.

John W. Dafoe
Editor, the Winnipeg Free Press
in a lecture at Columbia University, 1934.[1]

Very few people in the 1930s could have grasped the significance of John Dafoe's words. Indeed, he would have been surprised to learn of the coming intimacy in Canadian-American relations, not only during World War H but also in the years to follow. He would have been amazed at the wartime understanding which continued into the post-war years, and at the principal forum of that entente, the Permanent Joint Board on Defence (PJBD).
