Neighbours Taken For Granted or Dr. Livingstone (Merchant) I Presume?

A discussion of "the relationship that exists between Canada and the United States, and the possibility of further strengthening the ties that bind our two great nations together." A review with extensive quotes from a book authored in part and edited by the Honourable Livingston T. Merchant entitled "Neighbours Taken for Granted." The purpose of the speaker to "whet your appetite for a fuller reading of his book." The book is a symposium and each of its chapters is written by a different contributor—three Canadians and three Americans. The subjects of the four chapters quoted are as follows: the story of the border that both unites and divides Canada and the U.S.; an explanation of Canada's sense of national destiny; the heart of the financial problem; an opposite view to that taken in the previous chapter. Some conclusions to be drawn with regard to the basic problems discussed. More quotes from other notables. Comments on American investment in Canada, political union, and nationalism. A look at the Treaty of Union of 1707 between Scotland and England. A suggestion by the speaker that the whole matter of the Canadian-American relationship should be studied and discussed objectively.
