All Programs / 29th Annual Couchiching Conference, 1960

The 1960 Couchiching Conference, a summer symposium on national and international affairs put together by the Canadian Institute on Public Affairs and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, assembles for its 29th annual meeting. The theme of the 1960 conference was "The Latin Americas."Every night at this time for the next week we're going to hear speakers from various Latin American countries—statesmen, scholars, businessmen—to talk among themselves and with colleagues from the United States, Great Britain, and Canada about the problems facing their various countries and in particular how these problems can affect Canadians. During the week we'll have first hand reports on the political upheavals which have occurred in the south and the enormous social and economic revolutions which are now in progress.
