The New Brunswick Chapter raises the question, “Do you consider the Toronto Globe & Mail Canada’s national newspaper? If you do, are you satisfied with the kind of book reviews of war-peace related books that appear?” Chapter members report that reviews of such topical books often present, not overviews of the contents but take-off points for a presentation of US Star Wars propaganda. Comment invited.
Colin Bell, BC Chapter, wants the BULLETIN to remind members that their responses to the questionnaire circulated with the last issue will be greatly appreciated.
