February 8, 1923 (14th Parliament, 2nd Session)


Hugh Alexander Stewart

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. STEWART (Leeds):

We are rejoicing in the vindication of the policy and the programme of our party that is coming through the merciless logic of events and by the action of our successors in office. I repeat that we are not dead, nor sleeping; and when the time comes-and it may not be very long- we shall be found ready and well equipped to resume the conduct of the complicated and difficult affairs of Canada, keeping her, with all her obligations, national and international, in a position of respect and responsibility in that great family of nations that go to make up the British Empire.
