I do not think I should be very wide of the mark, if I said that the older parts of Canada have for years regarded Alberta as a rather peculiar place, favorable to the breeding of extreme radicals, and peculiar political phenomena, and let it go at that. One wonders if it ever occurs to them that there are always causes and conditions which breed these things.

—Irene Parlby




If we instill tolerance, not hatred, developing a real spiritual love of country, if we can do all this, we need be afraid of no such little thing as a Latin text of an American anthem tucked away in a text book.

—Irene Parlby
