Excerpt from Addresses Delivered Before the Canadian Club of Toronto: Season of 1912-1913

AT a special meeting of the Canadian Club, held on the 14th October, 1912, Col. Denison said: Mr. Chairman, My Lord, and brother members of the Club, - It is with great pleasure that I take advantage of this opportunity of saying a few words on behalf of our great national hero. I do not propose giving you any account In detail of the battle of Queenston Heights; it has been done carefully and well in all the press through the past few days. But I would like to take up a point which I think of the very greatest importance to the Canadian people, and which I think should be understood clearly and well by all our people; and that is, the exact condition of affairs in this country on the opening of that war. No one can form any proper or correct impression of the greatness of Brock's character, unless he understands fully the conditions under which he lived, the difficulties he faced, the apathy that blocked his path. I want to let you understand exactly what those condi tions were in this country.

General Simcoe came here in 1792. He had with him a number of the United Empire Loyalists, loyal fighting men of the Revolution, who had abandoned their homes in the United States, and had settled in different spots along the frontier, in Glengarry, a few around Kingston, a good many around the Bay of Quinte and around Toronto, a good many on the Niagara frontier, and a few in the county of Norfolk, and westerly. One of the most distinguished families of those who settled in Norfolk is represented here with us to-day, I am glad to see, in my friend Col. Ryerson.

When these Loyalists had been here ten or twelve years, and had got homes for themselves in the wilderness, Governor Simcoe was anxious to get more population in this province, Colonel George Taylor Denison needed no introduction to his fellow members of the Canadian Club. Joseph Chamberlain excepted, he has done more than any other man living for the Imperial cause now so dear to the hearts of Canadians. This was the Opinion expressed by Lord Milner two or three years ago, and thinking men echo it. Viscount Milner himself is an old friend Of the Canadian Club as was indicated by the exceptionally warm welcome extended to him on this occasion.
