Relations of the United States with Canada and Great Britain

A few words on Dr. Montague and Mr. Foss and their speeches. Recalling another period of history when Cobden and Bright started the great agitation in England of what might be called their Reciprocity, which they called free trade. Their strategy and what happened in terms of protected trade. The need to stand by Canadian interests and to try to do what the United States have done in the last 30 or 40 years; building up Canada to be as big a country as the U.S. The question of Reciprocity; why it was wanted. Canadian people all united in the idea of standing by Preferential trade, and of linking our trade in no way with the United States. The speaker's belief that the day will come when Canada will be the very heart, the strength, the centre of the British Empire.
