The deep interest and keen sympathy for the subject "Canada and the Empire." Making sure that our own sympathies and lines of action rest not on momentary feelings but on deep and broad principles which will stand the test of time and the change of circumstance. The attitude towards Colonial concerns in the past. The danger of English people failing to understand the sentiments and aspirations of the Colonies to the extent of risking an alienation of their affections. Canadians as a very loyal but very sensitive people. Reasons why we should, from time to time, seriously consider what are the bases of our convictions, our sympathies, and our purposes in regard to the Empire and our relations to the same. A review of those convictions and sympathies. Schemes and suggestions for the strengthening of our connection with the Empire. The speaker's belief that the great forces now in motion are tending not to separate and isolate us, but to bind us more closely together. Canadians resolved to help on that movement with all our might.
