The Country and the Worker

—CARDINAL VILLENEUVE

Cardinal Villeneuve, Archbishop of Quebec, and Adelard Godbout, Premier of Quebec, urged the 1,000 delegates attending a Co-operatives' Congress to extend the co-operative movement as an economic safeguard in the difficult days which will follow the war.

Cardinal Villeneuve said the co-operatives were not only an economic factor through the elimination of " parasites " but that they developed the social instinct. Co-operation would break without violence the economic dictatorship. said the Cardinal.

" Someone had said there are poor people because there are not enough millionaires I " he continued. " But it is scarcely the millionaire who helps his country, unless he is endowed with a great social sense. In fact the economic life of a country depends on the purses of the farmer and the worker. They will be able to meet the grave post-war problems if they possess strong co-operative movements," As their Archbishop, the Cardinal urged them to spread far afield their co-operative movement. The Church, he said, gave the example in this matter, fot co-operation is the social teaching of the Church.
