SUPPORT  UNION

Liberals and Conservatives are United
The People Must Unite to
Win the War
A Laurier-Bourassa Victory means deserting; our boys in the trenches
for over a year, throwing up our hands and quitting! Don't shout
"Kamerad" under the Referendum proposal. - Come out and fight
for Union Government.
Make No Mistake
IF LAURIER WINS:
(1) Canada will send no more
reinforcements to the front, which
practically means quitting the war and
placing the country in the same class
es Russia. ^
(2) The French-Canadians who have
shirked their duty in this war wilt
be the dominating force in the Government of the country.
IS
ARE THE ENGLISH-SPEAKING PEOPLE PREPARED
TO STAND FOR THAT ?
It is because the French-Canadians have not done their duty that Conscription
had to be resorted to.
The French-Canadians have made it perfectly clear that they do not like the war
and are against Canada participating in it further. Some of them even go to
the length of saying that the soldiers should be brought back from the front.
The Nationalists are demanding that the men who have been enrolled under the
Military Service Act be disbanded and sent back to their homes. To secure- the
Nationalist support Laurier-Liberal candidates in Quebec have signed the following
pledge:—
"I, the undersigned, candidate In the Federal Election!, undertake by these presents)
if I am elected, to demand the immediate suspension of the Military Service Act, 1917,1
and of all its effects until Canadian elector! have pronounced by way of plebiscite; and
should the majority of the electors condemn it, that it be considered as null Jrom its
origin and that in consequence all conscripts be disbanded."
- "I also undertake to vote against any Government which should refuse to adopt the
above enunciated policy."

The formation of the Union
Government is the greatest thing
that has ever taken place in Canadian history. All honor to our
Liberal, Conservative and Labor leaders who have sacrificed
personal and party interests for
the sake of Canada and for the
continuance and preservation of
British ideals and British supremacy.
But the action of our political

There is not a woman amongst
us who would not find it easier
to go to the battle front herself,
rather than send her 20 year old

she would save him if she only
were permitted to go herself.
What then can we do to stop

a Laurierite victory would be disastrous, it would be hailed with
delight in Germany as a sign of

No Picture of the year has been

"For the Freedom of the World."
An unrivalled picture of human valor, a lesson in genuine patriotism."
"Here is a picture that makes the
spectator feel proud that he is a Canadian. Patriotism, romance, and
thrills crowd the production from
start to finish."
"For the Freedom of the World,"
is the best story of its kind ever
■shown on the screen. Every scene

On December 17th, the people
must declare for Canada and
Canada's soldiers or Quebec and
Quebec's slackers. They must
choose between patriotism and
pea soup.
Who will rule? That is the
issue, Must the eight British

Bourasaa and the men who
would dishonor Canada? After
December it will be Canadian
rule or Quebec rule. WHICH?
IF LAURIER WINS
If Laurier wins Canada becomes another Russia, recreant
to her heroic dead, to her allies
and to liberty and civilization.
If Laurier wins Canada becomes a "slacker" nation, deserting her men overseas and
dishonored at home and among
all democratic nations.
If Laurier wins Canada becomes a French-Canadian nation
and the Anglo-Saxon loses his
honor and nationality.
If Laurier wins self-respecting
Canadians cannot afford to remain in this country and share
the odium attached to the race.
If Laurier wins—Canada dies.
