Summary "At the turn of the century Robert Sellar, editor of the Huntingdon Gleaner in Quebec's historic Chateauguay Valley, was the most-quoted rural newspaperman in Canada. His controversial opinions on Confederation, national policy, and especially French-Canadian nationalism sparked debate across Canada and around the world. Widely regarded as the authentic voice of the English-speaking minority, Sellar attempted to alert the rest of Canada to the threat of ultramontane clericalism and French-Canadian nationalism emanating from Quebec." "Exploring the earliest origins of "English exodus" and the English-speaking minority rights battle in Quebec, Voice of the Vanishing Minority makes for timely reading in light of recent developments in Quebec."--Jacket.
