The case is as absurd as that. More than that, it would be a very strange position for Canada to be in. When the British Ambassador was in Washington discussing highly confidential questions with the American Secretary of State, how would he like to have a third party intervene?' It would lead to endless embroilments and endless quarrels between Canada and the Mother Country. I say that in the best interests of Canada and the Mother Country the appointment of a Canadian ambassador to Washington is not to-be desired. But, really, we need waste no time in discussing the desirability of having one, for he will never be appointed.
The object of Mr. Amery's visit last summer was very easy to divine, and there has appeared enough in the press of Great Britain and enough has been hinted on the floor of the House at Westminster to dispose of the question forever. But I say
the policy of every true Canadian statesman, and I hope they will be adopted by the leader of the Government. At all events I know that they will ever be the watchwords of the Liberal party.
