Sir Wilfrid Laurter's policy is to place all the burden upon the mother country, reap all the ad- vantages, and take none of the re- sponsibilities.1' AH this, of- course, is mere assump- tion. The Morning Post cannot and does not know what Mr. Bordsn's pro- gram will be, for that has not yet been decided: but in any event, to say that it will have the approval of the Im- perial government means nothing. Of course, -Mr. Bordeu's policy will have the approval of the Imperial govern- ment. The Imperial government re- cognizes that question is one for Canada herself to decide, and what- ever she may decide will have impc-r- ial approval. Sir Wilfrid Laurier's' program had imperial approval, and and welcomes it.
