It is well that we should realize it as1 an Imhiense' undertaking, bu there should :beL no panic about -it because, as a matter of fact. Can Ida. has !n years assimilated hundreds, qf thousands ot. now comers 'annually. "As Sir Jamos .lougheed recently said, before the we would have hailed with da-; light the influx of four or five hjia- (dred thousand Furopeans in any preparing to urge it more strongly than ever now that the wur is over. But the farmers, and particularly those ot tho wosi, who use "5 per cent, ot Iho tractors la Canada, arc likely to have just as strong a pro test that tractors remain duty-free Ifhsy point out that now. more than ever, Canada, must keep up and in crease agricultural production. Can ada has an enormous war bill t- meet, and in. order to meet It Can- ada's export trade must bo bunt up. trade From The New Social (3rd er Message for From llio time Plato wrote his Ko- public, through successive ifo Sir Thomas Moore's Utopia, i In the. theory and practice of tha French Cummuue, down to (ho vagaries of Itusslun Itol'shevikl, "Ideal" sys and society Tne fault of Weekly.)
