- 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.
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).
