Wilfrid laurier

"Canada has been modest in its history, although its history, in my estimation, is only commencing. It is commencing in this century. The nineteenth century was the century of the United States. I think we can claim that Canada will fill the twentieth century."  --  Sir Wilfrid Laurier, January 18, 1904
