Mr. LALONDE:

It seems to me that the explicit statements of the right honourable Mackenzie King and of the honourable senator Dandurand on this subject are sufficient to appease public opinion. This does not imply that we should not be very cautious should legislation to that effect be introduced. This is a question of principle on which we must stand firmly. The future of Canada is at stake! All true patriots must have but one slogan: Canada first! And the interest of Canada is not to be found in Flanders, in the Spanish peninsula or in Ethiopia, but on the shores of the St. Lawrence as well as on the territory of the other provinces in the dominion.
