Saving Grace

Diefenbaker - a definition of an honorable man

"We shall never build the nation which our potential resources make possible by dividing ourselves into Anglophones, Francophones, multiculturalphones, or whatever kind of phoneys you choose. I say: Canadians, first, last, and always!"
June 4, 1973, House of Commons.

Diefenbaker understood united we stand, divided we fall and he worked towards national unity .

Unfortunately the country didn't understand what he stood for.

Later with Levesque pushing for Quebec separation,Trudeau asked Quebecers, what would change with such a drastic move?

Diefenbaker Quotes

Saving Grace

Eleven people were hanging on a rope
Under a helicopter..
10 men and 1 woman.
The rope was not strong enough to carry them all
So they decided that one had to leave,
Because otherwise they were all going to fall.
They weren't able to choose that person,
Until a woman,named Grace, gave a very touching speech.
She said that she would voluntarily let go of the rope,
Because, as a woman,
She was used to giving up everything
For her husband and kids or for men in general,
And was used to always making sacrifices
With little in return.

As soon as she finished her speech,
All the men started clapping . . . . ..

Men are gentlemen aren't they?

Diefenbaker sounds very much like Abraham Lincoln.
I enjoyed the story of Grace.
