GEORGE BROWN
Canadian (Scottish-born) journalist and statesman
(1818 - 1880)

One hundred years have passed away since the conquest of Quebec, but here we sit, the children of the victor and the vanquished, all avowing hearty attachment to the British crown, all earnestly deliberating how we shall best extend the blessings of British institutions; how a great people may be established on this continent, in close and hearty connection with Great Britain. Where, sir, in the page of history, shall we find a parallel to this? Will it not stand as an imperishable monument to the generosity of British rule? And it is not in Canada alone that this scene has been witnessed. Four other colonies are at this moment occupied as we are--declaring their hearty love for the parent state, and deliberating with us how they may best discharge the great duty entrusted to their hands and give their aid in developing the teeming resources of these vast possessions.
