Premier Meighen unquestionably is the man. In the course of an address by Principal Bruce Taylor, of Queen's University, before the Kiwanis Club of Kingston, he paid the following tribute to Premier Meighen: "One of the pleasing facts I remarked in England was the great respect for Canada and Canadians, and this has been greatly furthered by the splendid impression made there by Premier Meighen when in attendance at the recent Imperial Conference, which was being held while I was overseas. Everywhere in England, wherever he went, Mr. Meighen made a marked impression as a strong, virile, vigorous personality - alert in mind, keen and far seeing in vision and judgement, and with a fearless determination to stand for the right. Perhaps the one characteristic of Mr. Meighen that more than anything else impressed the people of the Motherland was his quiet determination and his amazing ability to compress in a few words not alone his own opinions but, as I believe it, the opinion of his fellow countrymen, whom he so worthily represented.
