“The contribution of Canada to the Imperial war effort in troops, in ships, in aircraft, in food, and in finance has been magnificent…

Hitler and his Nazi gang have sown the wind: let them reap the whirlwind…

When I warned them (the French) that Britain would fight on alone whatever they did, their generals told their Prime Minister and his divided Cabinet, ‘In three weeks England would have her neck wrung like a chicken.’ Some chicken! Some neck.”

— Churchill, Winston S. Address to the Parliament of Canada, 30 December 1941.
