The real wealth of a country: first, the physical wealth of its resources; second, the wealth of its people in their ability and qualities. The material resources of Canada. The realization that our natural resources are not inexhaustible and that they are rapidly being exhausted. Our responsibility for our natural resources. The problem of our resources accentuated by the needs of the war. Demands made on Canada and her natural resources, and the consequences of those demands. An examination of several of our natural resources: gold; forestry; mining; water resources and water power. An examination of Canada's human resources. The need for education and finding out each person's abilities. The speaker's faith in the resources of Canada. The need to become aware of the mistakes that have been made and are being made, and as quickly as possible seeing to it that they are being remedied. Finding niches for those who return from war.
