1908 : CANADA AND THE MIQUELON ISLANDS.

20 novembre 1908.
CANADA AND THE MIQUELON ISLANDS.

Two disturbances on the Miquelon Islands which culminated in the hoisting of the American flag by some of the angry inhabitants, have a very direct interest for the people of Canada. These islands are geographically a part of Newfoundland, and, lying as they do just off the mouth of Fortune Bay, could be made to command Canada’s eastern doorway via the St. Lawrence. If they are to pass out of the control of France, Canada or Newfoundland, which will eventually become a part of the Dominion, ought to succeed to the control of the group. When Demark and France tire of hodling a precarious and useless foothold in the West Indies, the United States will be the natural heir to succession. When changes occurs on the Canadian Atlantic front this country should become the possessor of whatever is turned adrift.
