“For here [in Canada],
I want the marble to remain the marble;
the granite to remain the granite;
the oak to remain the oak;
and out of these elements,
I would build a nation great among the nations of the world.”

— Sir Wilfrid Laurier
7th Prime Minister of Canada
July 11, 1896 – October 6, 1911

“I am a Canadian,
a free Canadian,
free to speak without fear,
free to worship in my own way,
free to stand for what I think right,
free to oppose what I believe wrong,
or free to choose those
who shall govern my country.
This heritage of freedom
I pledge to uphold
for myself and all mankind.”

— John Diefenbaker
13th Prime Minister of Canada
June 21, 1957 – April 22, 1963
