The Ottawa government, seems to have yielded right from the llrst to the expectation thai Quebec would hang back and help little in the war. and so little or no effort was made to interest or arouse that province. The Borden government found itsell in office when this greatest of all wars came upon the world. The llordcn abinet became tile war ministry. Feo- le everywhere became conscious of he littleness of pany differences in he presence of the colossal issues ff he war. Sir Wilfrid l.auricr had been or sixteen years prime minister of Canada. He still was political leader of half the population of the Dominion. More than that, he was and had long leen the most distinguished mall of the French-Canadian race, which j forms at least one-fourth of the pop-1 ulatlun of the country. Yet when this j tremendous war came upon us, the ministry of the day went right along n its routine course, making no Chan-1 ges iii a cabinet lhat had been tossed together by the accidents of local and domestic politics, and not inviting any co-operation rebuHinE the friendly overtures man who was at one and the same time political leader of half the population of the: Dominion and the foremost French-] Canadian of his generation. The j course of the Borden ministry in this was not politic and it was a course followed by men who failed to realize the seriousness of the days they were living in and the responsibilities rest- ing upon them. They saw in Sir Wil- frid Laurier only a political out. and they had the opportunity- anil they took excluding him j from any participation, except m tile most private way. in tho great events of these limes. Tile greatest French- Canadian of his generation was not called into conference at all in the I great crisis- of the country's history. Perhaps at. first, here as In Eng- ilaud party feeling would account for i the holding apart of political leaders j who had been long engaged In hot i controversy, but here as in England I after a year had gone by and the seriousness of the war was known to I all there should have been a realiza- i tion by the government at Ottawa of the need for calling together the leaders of the people, in an advisory capacity, if not in a coalition mmis- Another mistake was made in the case of Jlajcr-Qeneral Lessard, C. B. When the war broke out and when it was desirable that Quebec should rally to the conflict along with Ontario and the other provinces, the government might well have considered it a for- timato circumstance that the foremost soldier in Canada, the senior general in the permanent force, happened to be Gen Lessard. a French-Canadian. Much might have been made of that fortunate circumstance. If Gen. Les- sard had been given at the outset of the war the high command to which his seniority, his ability, experience, and great popularity with the forces entitled him, something .like enthusi- asm might have shown itself among French-Canadians called upon to fol- low this general of their own. But Gen Lessard. foremost of Canadian soldiers, was tossed aside because Sir '.Sam Hughes had some old score to settlt with him, and politics had put Sir Sam in a position where he could settle all kinds of old scores. Yet -another mistake was made. In Quebec the Nationalists, led by Henri Botrrassa, gradually, and rather care- fully at first, worked around to a posi- tion of hostility' towards French-Cana- idian participation in the war. Mr. i Oliver 4sselin, a youns Nationalist of prominence, did not approve of Bour- j nssa's course, felt, called upon to fight the Germans, and volunteered to raise a battalion for overseas service. His offer was accepted, fiery speeches were made, enlhusiasm was aroused, and the battalion was raised. It was made up largely, as one would expect in the circumstances, of dashing spirits who preferred the counsels of Asselin to (hose of Bourassa. These young French-Canadians took up arms to go to the rescue of Belgium and of France and what became of this line battal- ion? It seems scarcely believable that anv government could, by mere chance make the blunder that was this battalion, raised by a revolting Nationalist in defiance of his leader, was shipped oil to Bermuda to be heard of no .more, doing dull garrison there. What we have to say is that blun- ders almost unbelievably stupid have been made, it the desire was to get Quebec to share in this war with the resl of us. The government jealously decided to go it alone and did not call Into conference the foremost-man of the French-Canadian rare, although he was the political leader of half the population ot the Dominion. The fore most soldier and senior officer of the permanent military force of the coun- try was a French Canadian who might have'had a 'great influence. He.was turned down, put'aside, and remains there, although his services in the war would bo of great value. And when Oliver Asselill. the .Nationalist, In defiance o!
