"You and I are so-called French- Canadians. We belong to a race that began the conquest of this country long before the days of Wolfe. That race was in its turn conquered, but their personal liberties were not res- tricted. They were, in fact, Increased. Ultimately, as a minority in a great English-speaking community, we have preserved our racial identity, and we have had freedom to speak or worship as we wished.

Tho crime of the Hoiirassa-Lavergne I movement is not the misrepresenta- tion of Quebec, nor the churlish sen- timonts of Ill-concealed hostility to Britain and Old France, nor the In- ternal divisions which sap the vigor and weaken the efforts of Canada In this fight.
