During his final Canadian peace campaign IN DECEMBER 1969, John Lennon AND YOKO ONO took part in a number of media engagements, Two OF WHICH occurred on TUESDAY, THE 23RD OF DECEMBER. the first WAS A LONG MEETING WITH CANADIAN PRIME MINISTER TRUDEAU IN WHICH JOHN AND YOKO WERE ABLE TO EXPOUND THEIR PEACE MESSAGE DIRECTLY TO A WORLD LEADER FOR THE FIRST AND ONLY TIME.

THE SECOND TOOK PLACE at the department of culture and technology at the University of Toronto. CBS-TV, a US television network, scheduled and filmed a summit between JOHN AND YOKO and the Canadian philosopher of communication theory and academic Marshall McLuhan. The encounter took place at McLuhan’s office at the university faculty, and lasted for 45 minutes.

the interview opens with JOHN discussing whether his campaigning would affect his art. He gives a typical response, saying all his activities were essentially artistic, and that art had no limits. He went on to say that each country had a different reaction to his peace campaigns, and said that the English failed to take him and Yoko Ono seriously. He felt in America their message was more accepted in New York than in the southern states. JOHN AND YOKO then gave a Christmas MESSAGE with of “peace on Earth”.
