Footnote 25

About the three English-Canadian writers, Bracq wrote: “The Clash de W.H. Moore est une étude du Canada français riche en inductions historiques, mettant au point la question des écoles françaises dans l'Ontario, et insistant sur la haute valeur du Canadien comme facteur de la vie nationale. Se plaçant sur une base sociologique et dominé par le plus pur libéralisme britannique, il démontre que les adversaires des Canadiens, dans le Haut-Canada, se sont détachés des traditions et idéals britanniques. Le Birthright de Mr Arthur Hawkes, protestant contre un impérialisme officieux qui ignore les droits du Canada, met incidemment en relief la valeur du peuple de Québec. The Bridging of the Chasm de Mr Percival Tellman Morley, est un noble plaidoyer en faveur d'un traitement plus impartial et bienveillant des anciens fils de la France."
