The speaker's acquaintance with Canada and Canadians on the sand fields of Flanders. Memories of Montreal. Coming to Toronto. Remarks on the "wider" life that seems to be presented in Canada; a suggestion of freedom. Contrasting life in Canada with life in Scotland as the speaker experienced it. Impressions of Yonge Street. Canada, now beginning to have its great opportunity; that the super-structure is just beginning to be added to the magnificent foundation which has been laid by the power and the energy and the backbone of our ancestors. Regions in which Canada has a particular contribution to make. Canada's government, and literature. Making true the words of the great Canadian National Hymn.
