"Sponsored by the Canadian Good Roads Association, who examined the poor condition of some of Canada's highways. Suggests how this situation can be alleviated."


"Business in Motion: Films of Current Interest," Canadian Business 26 (May 1953): 118.
"The volume of traffic on our highways has increased at a rate which far outstrips repair work and new construction. The number of automobiles alone has doubled in the past 10 years, while all types of consumer goods are crossing Canada by truck in ever-increasing quantities. The Canadian Good Roads Association is sponsoring systematic research to obtain the most effective, modern and economical methods to improve road conditions, and the film ends with a note of the things which each one can do to promote the construction of adequate highways for his country."
