I am sure that in Canada the people appreciate this principle, and the general intelligence which prevails over that country is such that I am sure there is no danger of a reactionary policy ever finding a response in the hearts of any considerable number of our people.
Mackenzie quotes
I have always held those political opinions which point to the universal brotherhood of man, no matter in what rank of life he may have taken his origin.
We shall all respect the principles of each other and do nothing that would be regarded as an act of oppression to any portion of the people.

Mackenzie Alexander quotes
To legislate in advance of public opinion is merely to produce anarchy instead of maintaining law and order.
Mackenzie Alexander

Means would be found to employ the Graduates in the Canadian Military Service
