Library and Archives Canada / MG26-H, vol. 219, file RLB 1430, pages 123403-123406, reel C-4403
Monsignor Paul Bruchési, Archbishop of Montreal, to Sir Robert Laird Borden, Prime Minister of Canada, May 27, 1917
Before receiving Borden's answer to his May 22 letter, Monsignor Bruchési states his opinion. The Borden fonds contains extensive correspondence about conscription. The letters are from opponents and supporters of the government position. The Laurier fonds, dating from his term as Leader of the Opposition during the war, is also of interest in this regard.

With the permission of the Archdiocese of Montreal.
