“I am branded in Québec as a traitor to the French, and in Ontario as a traitor to the English. In Québec, I am branded as a jingo, and in Ontario as a separatist. In Québec, I am attacked as an Imperialist, and in Ontario as an anti-Imperialist. I am neither. I am a Canadian. Canada has been the inspiration of my life. I have had before me as a pillar of fire by night and a pillar of cloud by day a policy of true Canadianism, of moderation, of conciliation.”
Charisma. Compromise. Conciliation. Canadian. Wilfrid’s vision pictured a land of individual liberty where French and English worked together as partners to build this new country. It is a legacy that still resonates today.
