About this directory ..
Reporters frequently seek out those who would rather not be sought
out. Then question them when they would rather not be questioned.
This directory will be of little help in such situations, which
are a matter for hard-nosed journalistic work.
In most cases, however, good journalism means sweating out the
best questions and putting them to the best spectrum of sources.
This directory can help in these circumstances.
A remarkable array of available information is represented in the
listings in this book, which even in this, its first, edition is
the most comprehensive of its kind ever published in Canada. The
media contact persons listed are ready to answer questions, provide
background material, help you check facts, or help you get in touch
with others who have the information your story requires.
To help us improve for the Fall 1977 edition (already assured of
being significantly larger) be sure to send us your criticisms,
praise and especially suggestions. (See the suggestion form on the
inside back cover.)
Remember to watch Content monthly for updatings of the listings.
Keep Sources handy so it can help you today, tomorrow,
or in the coming months.
