"Canada is the linchpin of the English-speaking world. Canada, with those relations of friendly, affectionate intimacy with the United States on the one hand and with her unswerving fidelity to the British Commonwealth and the Motherland on the other, is the link which joins together these great branches of the human family, a link which, spanning the oceans, brings the continents into their true relation and will prevent in future generations any growth of division between the proud and the happy nations of Europe and the great countries which have come into existence in the New World." -- Winston Churchill (b. 1874-11-30, d. 1965-01-24; UK Prime Minister 1940-1945 & 1951-1955)), at a luncheon 1941-09-04 to honour Mackenzie King (b. 1874-12-17, d. 1950-07-22; Prime Minister of Canada 1921-1926, 1926-1930, 1930 & 1945-1948)

[Happy Victoria Day to my Canadian friends!]
