CANDIS News

anon — April 1983

The Canadian Disarmament Information Service is a non-profit organization, sponsored by Holy Trinity Church and funded by donations. Our office is in the Peace Chapel of Holy Trinity (behind the Eaton Centre) and we’re open from 9 am. to 5 pm., Monday to Friday and from 12 noon to 5:00pm. on Saturdays.

Visit us any time and pick up your copy of the latest Peace Calendar, brochures, flyers, educational kits, periodicals and resource lists on nuclear arms and disarmament. Our volunteers will answer any questions you may have and you can browse through our reference library or clippings file at your leisure.

CANDIS — What we Offer

CANDIS gathers information from all sources on nuclear arms and disarmament and makes that information available to the public. The Peace Calendar is published monthly and includes an extensive Toronto peace events listing. as well as major events being held across Canada. Annual mailed subscriptions cost $8 — or pick up your copy free at CANDIS.

The Peace Calendar will continue to provide extensive listings of events in Toronto in addition to major events throughout Ontario and the rest of Canada. Correspondents are needed for each of the provinces. Please write to us if you are interested.

The Peace Calendar is also distributed to bookstores, restaurants, libraries, schools, and churches throughout Toronto.

A disarmament hotline is maintained 24 hours a day (xxx-xxxx). When no one is in the office, an answering machine will take your message. We provide information impartially on all peace groups.

CANDIS serves as an information clearing house for the peace movement. CANDIS exists to facilitate communication between the public and the nearly 100 peace groups in Toronto alone. CANDIS also acts as liaison between the media and the peace movement.

CANDIS needs more information on peace organizations. We are compiling an annotated list of peace groups in Canada and would like to include a small description of your orientation (e.g. church, professional, political, artistic). We also need at least two contact people for each organization, with telephone numbers.

Pamphlets, flyers, brochures. Send us plenty of each if you would like them distributed to visitors at CANDIS.

Books, books and more books.., Our library is growing slowly and we need more book donations. If you have literature on nuclear disarmament that you no longer want, don’t let it sit on your shelf to collect radioactive dust. Donate your books to CANDIS to the rest of us can become just as brilliantly authoritative on the arms race as you are!

Subscribe

To receive your own copy of The Peace Calendar by the first of each month, subscribe. We have been mailing sample copies to many readers who have not sent in subscription orders, but postage costs prevent us from doing so after this issue. Our rates are reasonable-$8.00 for 12 monthly issues each year. Send a cheque payable to CANDIS or The Church of the Holy Trinity, 10 Trinity Sq., Toronto MSG IBI.

Mailing List

If you would like your name to be available to peace groups across Canada, CANDIS will add you to a computerized mailing list for $2.00. This does not, of course, cover the cost of a subscription.

Advertise Here

We’re expecting The Peace Calendar to become largely self-supporting next month by selling advertising space. The most space we sell, the more copies we can afford to print and distribute to the public. You can help educate the Canadian public about the threat of nuclear war and do your business a favor at the same time. Our circulation is now 20,000 and growing fast. For advertising rates, phone Jon Spencer at xxx-xxxx.

From the beginning, committee meetings at CANDIS have always been friendly, productive and harmonious. CANDIS is only three months old and there are still many wrinkles to be ironed out within Committee functions and day-to-day running of the office. Nonetheless, CANDIS is remarkably successful to have come so far in to short a time. Our dedicated volunteers take all the credit for this success, each one offering a completely fresh and creative outlook to the operation. In the May issue of The Peace Calendar we’ll publish their names, but until then, you know who you are! And we truly thank you. Without your commitment CANDIS would not exist.
