PREFACE TO SECOND EDITION

As the years pass the Canadian problem looms larger and ever larger for us as Churchmen as well as members of the British Empire. I dedicate these pages to the new Canada of this century, the giant among the new nations. We shall show our respect for him best by providing with the ablest and wisest and most human leaders in Church as well as in State. I have brought the earlier chapters of this book up to date without demolishing the account of the developments of a few years ago. The last chapters speak of the new Forward Movement by the Church on behalf of Western Canada.
