That, while recognizing that national and provincial control generally obtain in respect of the liquor traffic in Canada, the General Synod is not prepared to endorse at present any movement looking towards the nationalization and ownership of the traffic by Government and advises further study in this direction. Further, the Synod believes that the time is ripe for the Federal Authority to appoint a Royal Commission to study and report upon all phases of the liquor traffic in the light of modern medical and other scientific knowledge, the high complexity of the modern machine age, industrial life, and the rapid urbanization of society and urges the Federal Authority to appoint such a commission:
The General Synod in the meantime expresses its deep concern at the rapid increase in most provinces of the consumption of both malt liquors and spirits, with augmentation of ill effects to many areas of society, including youth, and to many phases of community life.
Further we appeal to our Church people to recognize the greatness of the evil and to set and maintain a standard in this matter consistent with their Christian profession. CARRIED in both Houses.

(a) That this General Synod recognizing the increasingly severe restrictions imposed by the Government and people of Canada concerning food and certain amenities of life, and having due regard to the whole morale of the people in the conduct of the war, expresses the opinion that the Federal Government will be justified in at least continuing the modest restrictive measures regarding the sale of alcoholic beverages at present in effect, and,
(b) Further expresses the hope that our Church people will try by all means in their power to forward the cause of true temperance for the better protection of the youth and young womanhood of our country and for the better prosecution of the war. CARRIED in both Houses.
