Our National Leader

Sir Wilfrid Would Finish His Work

Not many years now remain to me. The snows of winter have taken the place of spring: but, however I may show the ravages of time, my heart still remains young, and I feel that I have as much strength as ever for the service of my country. In spite of my sixty years, of which so much has been spent in the service of the Dominion, I am sure that some time remains for me yet to oppose the sinister combinations, and especially I have a tooth for the unholy alliance between the Castors and Conservatives ... Our greatest work for the advancement of Canada is the construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific, which means so much for our country's future, and with which I hope my name will be chiefly associated. The more we know about this line the more we see its advantages to Canada. In fact, its advantages are already being felt as even now it is taking part in the transportation of the western wheat crop. Within two years we shall see this line running from Moncton to Winnipeg, opening up traffic to new empires of the north where generations yet to come will be able to settle and make their livelihood. I tell you in all sincerity that I want to carry the coming general election in order to finish this great work, and when it is completed I shall be content to say with the prophet of old: "Lord, now let Thy servant depart in peace." -- The Premier at Sorel.
