Happy Canada day, II

From the back file of the Winnipeg Free Press, February 25, 1928:

Grenfell Disappointed at
Award in Labrador Case

Toronto, Feb. 24.—Sir Wilfred T. Grenfell, famous medical missionary of the Labrador Peninsula, on arrival in Toronto for a lecture engagement today, expressed some disappointment at the recent privy council ruling which gave Newfoundland the larger portion of the Labrador Peninsula. He declared the people of Labrador always wanted to belong to Canada, "and do yet. Other people may have different opinions, but that is mine. They would have united with the Dominion even thirty years ago."
