But moment yon-imply that they plight possibly lead to political action which would so much as squint at political separation from the rest of Canada, you arc gabbling-Um'veriest folly. Let us get this vague and foggy spectre of "separation" out of our minds, once for all. Let us settle it by saying, flatly, that the west could not secede from the east, arid that the east could not secede from the west, unless an overwhelming majority the people In both sections of the Do- minion desired it.

Do you imagine that a major- ity of the Cana-dian people would stand hy and permit this to happen? Most assuredly not.
