Ralph Allen

Journalist, columnist, author of The Man From Oxbow: The Best of Ralph Allen (1967)

No matter what we choose to say of it, Canada is a whole series of accidents. If it should expire in its present form the world would survive and so, almost certainly, would Canada's separate parts. I don't expect my children to suffer much if Quebec should withdraw or Canada withdraw from Quebec. ... Yet it's been a lovely place to grow up in, whether it was an accident or not.

1967 - from The Man From Oxbow
