Klappentext

Excerpt from The Canadian Club of Vancouver: Inaugural Addresses, Constitution, and Roll of Members

Canada has in the main been most fortunate in the choice of her governors-general. Lord Durham and the Earl of Elgin are conspicuous examples. Without Lord Monck there might have been no 'fathers of Confederation'. Had it not been for his determined efforts to bring about a federation' of the provinces, and the tact he exercised in reconciling the warring factions of the day, there might have been no British North American Act. Lord Dufferin played the role of peace maker between this province and the rest of Canada with well known results. Lord Minto had much to do with the great blow struck by Canada for the Empire, in sending contingents to South Africa. But the greatest problem of all is still before us. What is our destiny? We are in the Empire, but not of the Empire. We are British, but with British concerns we have nothing to do. We have long remained in a position of irresponsibility inconsistent with the pride and dignity of British people. Then, what is our destiny? Perhaps Your Excellency may be able to help in the solution of this problem. The task is one of the greatest which has ever been set be fore British and Canadian statesmen. It is one worthy of your distinguished family.
