FOREWORD

I am honored in the request to contribute a foreword. That this case book will serve to meet a recognized need and to supply ready access to material which should be available to students is unquestionable. Having had the opportunity of perusing the table of contents and the introductions, I realize the very considerable labor of research involved in its preparation; and I congratulate the joint authors upon the distinctive success of their effort.

More than a hundred years ago, Canada began to emerge, at first rather slowly and painfully, from the wardship of the Colonial Office. Her steps in advance have usually been gradual (more rapid in this century than ever before); but the advance has never been definitely checked and always the impulse came from Canada until at last she gained her present recognized position in the Society of Nations.

Nothing is more profoundly interesting and indeed inspiring than the advance of a free people towards the conception and attainment of true nationhood; not nominal, but spiritual nationhood founded upon the acceptance and fulfilment of a nation's responsibilities. In the incidents and vicissitudes with which Canada's century-long development has been attended, in the international contacts which it has entailed, there is wide scope for the student of political relations and of national evolution.

The labors of Professor MacKenzie and Professor Laing have been devoted to a most commendable purpose and based upon a broad outlook. Not only by the public servant and the student, but by all earnest observers of the phenomena of democracy, the results embodied in this volume should be welcomed.
