Excerpt from Canada and National Service The recognition that all was not well with the system of defence in vogue in Canada, that we lacked even the basic principle of national organisation and preparedness, did not come to me through being told something or reading something. In my case it eventuated from a distinct process of evolution, through seeing vastly different results from other conditions, and then from enquiring into what had brought them about. It is now nearly a dozen years ago that chance led me into the mountains of Switzerland, after more than a score of years' experience in the Canadian Militia. There, enquiry into the matter of shooting led to an enfolding of enough of the wonder of a true democracy of defence thoroughly to arouse my interest. This was the beginning of a general investigation, at every opportunity, of the Military systems pertaining to other countries, and of an examination into the conditions that prevailed in Canada in our past history. By contrast the hopelessness of our existing conditions was all too apparent. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
