world's conscience has condemned the wanton aggressors who have placed freedom, Christianity, and civilization in jeopardy.
As the chairman of the foreign relations committee said yesterday in the House of Representatives, the lease-lend bill "is the voice of aroused America, sounding the trumpet call of victory for free government everywhere."
The courage, determination and fortitude of the people of Britain in the face of continuous and appalling danger have not only gained the ungrudging admiration of the American people, but they have proved, with inexorable logic, that the strength of Britain is the one great obstacle in the path of the aggressors. The American people know that the magnificent resistance of Britain has made her the main outwork of the defences of the United States. Canada's example, as a nation of the new world, actively participating to the utmost limit in the present struggle, has also had its influence in arousing the people of the United States to their present realization that freedom itself is at stake in this war.
It in no sense minimizes the magnificent effort of Britain and the nations of the British commonwealth to say that the aid, .the cooperation and the limitless resources of the United States definitely ensure final victory.
We in Canada may feel more than a little pride in the share -we have had in bringing about the closer relationship between the United States and the British commonwealth. It will, I believe, seal the spiritual union of free peoples everywhere, out of which we may hope to build an enduring new world order.
