Canadian politics

“Dief, The Chief”

from :Ottawa Citizen

“I am one of those who believe that this party has a sacred trust, a trust in accordance with the traditions of (Sir John A.) Macdonald,” Diefenbaker thundered at the beginning of that historic campaign. “It has an appointment with destiny to plan and build for a greater Canada. It has a sacred trust handed down to us in the tradition of Macdonald to bring about that Canada which is founded on a spirit of brotherhood, vision and faith – one Canada with equality of opportunity for every citizen and equality for every province from the Atlantic to the Pacific … My purpose and my aim with my colleagues on this platform will be to bring to Canada and to Canadians a faith in their fellow Canadians, faith in the future of the destiny of this country.”
