"The major part of the Dominion of Canada has, to a greater or lesser extent, been under a system of Prohibition for the past four years, a period of sufficient duration for the thorough testing of policy. What have been the effects of Prohibition on the Canadian people ?" .... There must be some way of arriving at a satisfactory decision and the only practicable one is by enquiry over a large area. In order to effect this a questionnaire was circulated in the Bulletin of the Council for Social Service during the winter of 1919-20, and urgent requests were addressed to all readers to give their experience by means of answers to a number of questions. This is the second time that the Council has resorted to this method and the results in both cases quite justified the experiment. A large number of answers were received from every province, district and city of the Dominion, presenting a conspectus of the actual state of affairs from coast to coast which could not otherwise be obtained. The results are of absorbing interest and of the greatest value, and there can be no doubt that the report which we make now is an accurate presentation of the situation as we find it to-day in Canada. The method followed is precisely the same as in 1917 and the results are presented in the same manner" (pp. 3-4).

"The terms of reference to the committee appointed to inquire into the working of Prohibition in Canada cover a large field, and the report presented in the last number of the Bulletin did not give a complete outline of all the investigations carried on by the committee. The exact questions submitted for the study of the Council for Social Service at the general meeting in September, 1919, were as follows: -- 1. The extent to which non-enforcement of Prohibition prevails. 2. The evils arising from the use of: -- (a) The products of illegal stills. (b) Substitutes for liquor. 3. The reported increase of the drug habit. 4. The working of the present laws regarding the system of selling on doctor's prescriptions. The report already presented may be considered to have covered the first of these, and nothing further need be added on that point, and we may pass to the second [et al]" (p. 2).
