The Canadian Embassy to the Department of State
With reference to its aide-mémoire of January 26th23 the Department of State is informed that the Canadian Government has been giving consideration to the intricate problems of postwar international air transport and has tentatively reached the conclusion that the most helpful solution of these problems lies in the adoption of a multilateral air transport convention. There are attached copies of a memorandum outlining the matters which in the view of the Canadian Government might fall within the scope of such a convention.
The Canadian Government would be grateful in return to receive at an early date the preliminary views of the United States Government on the general subject of postwar aviation.
Believing that a discussion of this subject with the Governments of the United States and the United Kingdom would be mutually profitable the Canadian Government is prepared to enter into such discussions whenever agreeable to the other two Governments.
