"As a result of its survey and investigation, and the unanimity of the evidence and submissions received, your Committee has come definitely to these conclusions: - 1. That the Tourist Trade of Canada is capable of great expansion. 2. That this is a matter of national concern, in the interests of the Dominion as a whole. 3. That there is need for the establishment, at as early a date as possible, of a central organization at Ottawa to co-ordinate the activities of the multitude of tourist agencies, public and private, throughout the Provinces, as well as the work of those Federal departments and services interested in the promotion of tourist travel within and to Canada." pp.viii-ix.

William Henry Dennis (March 31, 1887 – January 18, 1954) was a Conservative and Progressive Conservative party member of the Senate of Canada. He was born in Colchester County, Nova Scotia and became a printer and publisher of the Halifax Herald.
