Conservative Convention (02/10/1948): two shots from different angles of George Drew walking to podium, preparing to speak, speaking (silent) intercut with HAS of audience listening. Shot of George Drew speaking with boundless optimism of Canada's future and somehow tying in that future with the Conservative party by proclaming this very day in which the conservatives are chosing a new leader, a day of destiny in Canada (sound). Applause and cheers from George Drew's supporters. HASs over cheering crowds, listening audience. Shot of VIP's on platform, focus on George Drew and wife. Cut to cheerleaders in audience waving their arms, people chanting "we want George". Cut to John Bracken at podium leading cheers for the three candidates. MLS of VIP'S on platform, John Diefenbaker and Donald Fleming standing by George Drew, all three waving and grinning. Sequence on balloting, men passing ballot boxes around, Drew voting. HAS of people waiting patiently for results.
