A joint meeting of The Empire Club of Canada and The Canadian Club of Toronto.
Impressions of and about Canadians, after much travel and conversation throughout the country. These impressions begin a discussion of Canada now and in the future: Canadians recognize the need the change; that we have reached a fragile moment; we care deeply about the future of the country. Evidence of such a commitment. The necessity for Canadian to understand the issues facing them. The importance of the will of the people for a constitution. The challenges ahead. The role and responsibility of the media. Obligations of the people. What is at stake in the constitutional issue.
