Box 14-096 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from Lyman Potts at CKOC
Dec 5 1946
To: Rev. Calvin McQuesten, 41 Jackson St. West, Hamilton, Ontario
As in past years, Broadcasting Station CKOC will provide an accurate up-to-the-minute reporting service on Monday's Civic Election returns.1 We have made arrangements with Mr. Berry, City Clerk, to occupy on election night, the Tax Arrears Office located in the basement of the City Hall at the foot of the York Street stairs. In this office will be located a staff of CKOC workers, who will compile the vote as it is reported at the City Hall by the various Deputy Returning Officers.
As a heavy vote is expected this year, the first returns will not be available until mid evening. Consequently we have arranged to begin our broadcasting service at 10 P.M. and continue same until all of the contests have been definitely decided.
Last year, as in previous years, CKOC through its efficient returns [sic], and I can assure you that this year will prove no exception.
Should you wish to learn the progress of the vote prior to our going on the air at 10 o'clock, we have arranged for a special telephone service which is available to you by dialing 7-4484. A blackboard will be placed outside of the Tax Arrears Office which will also show progressive returns.
Once your position regarding the outcome of the vote is clear, we would be pleased to make available our facilities, in order that you may thank your supporters. Our microphones will also be located in the Tax Arrear Office.
Trusting that you will take advantage of our facilities and wishing you every success, I remain,
Yours very tuly,
J Lyman Potts,
