WHAT an inspiration to our time is the memory of the men who welded the scattered
communities  of  Queen  Victoria's   subjects  in  British  North  America   into  one
magnificent whole,   and laid  down the  constitutional principles of the Empire's
largest unit!
Presiding over the Conference which resolved on Union was Etienne Pascal Tache, a
veteran of the War of 1812, who expressed the loyalty of his countrymen when he said:
"The last gun to be fired for British supremacy in British North America would be fired
by a French-Canadian".
John A. Macdonald was a commanding figure in the Conference, with his insight into
character and his knowledge of British institutions. ,
Vital to success were the energy and courage of Georges Etienne Cartier, who later, when
the British Columbia delegates spoke of asking for a Canadian railway line only to the foot
of the Rockies, and a wagon-road thence to the Pacific, replied: "Ask for a railway all the
way, and you will get it."
With these were George Brown, a great Liberal who forgot party in desire for Union;
T. Alexander Galt, master of finance; Thomas D'Arcy McGee, poet, historian, orator;
Oliver Mowat, a legal giant; Charles Tupper, master debater; Samuel Leonard Tilley, a
power in the Maritime Provinces; and others as great.
These foresaw the necessity of a railway from sea to sea, and their vision became reality
in the achievement of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
