To develop the resources of Canada, and to take care of ils obligations incurred through our participation in the Great World War is a big order. Every citizen o( the Dominion is asked lo become a shareholder in ihis co- operative through forced taxations or contributions, but by the purchase of bonds in the concern, the Dominion of Canada. Back of these bonds is nol only ihe guaranlee of every citizen of Canada, but also every item of wealth within the boundaries of ihe Dominion. Money deposited in one of the chartered banks drawing 3% interest is a wise and good thing, but cannot be compared with an in- vestment in Dominion Government Victory Bonds drawing backed by the combined wealth and industry of-the whole nation. Let us, therefore, all become partners in the great business of nation-building by purchasing Victory Bonds to the extent of our financial ability. The Local Committee are not asking you for a donation, but are in- viting you to become shareholders in the biggest enter- prise in Canada- The Committee earnestly solicits the co-operation of every resident of Lclhbndge and district. Canada desires to borrow from her own people, and wishes lo pay the interest lo her own citizens. The canvassing will start promptly at 9 o'clock Mon- day, October 27th, next week. D. E. HARRIS, F.E.
