Britain Today

A joint meeting of The Empire Club of Canada and The Canadian Club of Toronto. Some remarks about world events following World War I and World War II, including some personal reminiscences of the speaker. The speaker's experience of Canada. Britain and the British people. What is being said about Britain, and the speaker's response. Topics addressed include Britain's military power; the financial and economic situation; industrial disputes and strikes and the British workman. What is wrong in Britain today. A response to the accusation that Britain is morally decadent. The lack of basic alteration in the character of the British people: their courage, their kindliness, their serious view of life and of trying to face its modern complications. A message of hope from the old country that has "weathered so many storms in her long and glorious history."
