On June 28, 1965, Ambassador Livingston Merchant and Canadian Ambassador A.D.P. Heeney presented the Secretary of State with their joint report, “Canada and the United States—Principles for Partnership.” [Page 696] The report was the result of a January 1964 agreement by President Johnson and Prime Minister Pearson to establish a working group on improving cooperation between the two nations. A copy of the report, which was subsequently released to the public on July 12, is printed in American Foreign Policy: Current Documents, 1965, pages 1044-1046.
