An Appeal by Honourable R .B. Hanson, K. C, M. P. To Conservatives to Support the 'Forthcoming Plebiscite. In appealing to Conservatives throughout Canada and to the vast numbers of our Party who are, now serving in the Armed Forces of our country to support the lor incoming Plebiscite, it is perhaps as well ihai. I should once more make clear the position which I have taken and the view which I still firmly retain re- garding the Plebiscite. Witn all the emphasis and sincer-h- y at my command, I have urged t c Government to pursue the man-- 1. course, -- to drop this Plebiscite and to face a responsibility which pro--1 OPENING STAGES OF BRITAIN'S GREAT LIBYAN OFFENSIVE jrly belongs to Parliament.

I deem it, and I have so stated depleted Panzer units steadily westwards. By cutting the enemy's Bardia-Halfaya-Si- di Omar fort- ress on many occasions, an Unworth lines and inflicting heavy lo-se-s in men,. tanks and equipment, the British seriously crippled the evasion of responsibility. However, whole of Germany's North African plans . . . .

The Pleb- iscite Tobruk garrison. . . , is to be held, notwithstanding the various protests of my collea- gues and myself in the House of Commons and in spite of an im pressively vigorous, public opinion. In view of the Government's de- cision, I have given careful and earnest consideration to the course ,. of action which I should take. I cannot and I would not ignore my responsibility as a Canadian citizen and as a Member of Parlia- ment holding the position which, for the time being I do. I have come to the conclusion that, while we ought not to have been put in the position we are, I cannot take the responsibility of advising any- one to vote "NO" That would not only tie the hands of the Govern- ment but .would make it impossible ' for any further steps to be taken with regard, to extending the man- power of the country for service be- yond the territorial imitations of Canada.
