Prime Minister’s Visit – 1963

A UPI Telephoto – dated March 6, 1963

    Prime Minister John Diefenbaker helps Mrs. Diefenbaker down train steps upon arrival here 3/6. Prime Minister Diefenbaker campaigned in the Windsor, Ont., industrial area. The latest chapter in the nuclear controversy that toppled Diefenbaker’s conservative government was a report from Washington D.C., 3/5 that the Prime Minister had revealed classified U.S. defence information. Diefenbaker was pressed for comment on the report 3/6 during his campaign swing.

The P.M.s visit didn’t rate that highly with the Windsor Star, and his visit to the Walkerville station, only had a small story that was relegated to Page 3.

Have a good weekend everyone! See you back here Monday.
