An Address Presented During the 1984 Canadian General Election

A joint meeting of The Empire Club of Canada and The Canadian Club of Toronto. An examination and an anlysis of, and possible answers to, the question "Why is it, with a country such as Canada, with limitless resources, boundless opportunities, no horizons, why is it we are not living up to that potential? A review of various economic events and factors, following the Second World War on the theme that the "traditional thrust of our economy, in terms of resources, has been crippled and has not yet recovered." Such factors include a slow adjustment to a new tough world, an indulgence in abusing our federalism, an attitude abroad that Canada no longer welcomed foreign investment, and a concern about the fate of the public debt. A review of the activities and successes of the speaker's government. A critical analysis of the "hidden agenda" of the Progressive Conservative Party, and a response to them with regard to the Liberal Party's opposing views and plans. A discussion of the multicultural aspect of Canada. Principles for tackling the issue of growth. Concluding positive remarks about Canada and the Liberal government.
