Henri Bourassa

« The fatherland, for us, is the whole of Canada, that is to say a federation of distinct races and autonomous provinces. The nation which we wish to see developed is the Canadian nation, composed of French Canadians and English Canadians, that is to say a nation of two elements separated by language and religion and by the legal arrangements necessary for the preservation of their respective traditions, but united by a sentiment of brotherhood in a common attachment to a common country. »
Henri Bourassa, 1904
