The Canadian ideal, the Free Press very correctly maintains, approxi- mates that which is avowed by Aus- tralia, with apparently tow disscn- tients; It is held, we believe, by nn overwhelming majority of the Canad- ian people.

"Tho probabilities are, however, that Mr. Borden Is still of the opinion1 ho held in 1909, that a Canadian navy owned and controlled by Canada, available for the defence of the Em- pire is the only permanently satisfac- tory solution ot the probtam with which Canada is faced. This policy does not, of course, preclude the pos- sibility of immediate direct action in the event of an unquestioned emer- gency. If Jlr. Borden proposes, as his policy, a re-affirmation, in his own terms, ,of the principles embodied in the point rcsolutiOR, of March, 1903, the public interest will call, for such a measure of non-parttsaii support as will fix this as setUfkl and defin- ite policy: of the people of Canada.
