United States Authorities Refuse Recognition of Dominion Diplomatic Passport.

-- Staff Writer

United States Authorities refuse recognition of Dominion Diplomatic Passport.

His Excellency, Alan Goudman, the High Commissioner to Her Majesty's Provence of Alberta has been informed by the US Border Customs Office that it will refuse his request to transit the US by Land or Air as a Diplomatic representative of the Dominion of British West Florida.

This highly provocative move by the United States is currently being discussed in the Privy Council, but no 'real action' on the part of Her Majesty's Government is expected.

The Governor-General has been quoted by certain persons believed to be members of the Privy Council as saying “So what you want me to do about it? Send in the Marines to 'escort' him? We've got, what, 1 Marine, and he is currently detailed to East Florida. The High Commissioner can travel on his British or Canadian Passports, we'll stamp his Dominion one ourselves, and call it done. It will be a long time coming before we (or anyone else for that matter) will be able to 'force' overflight rules on the United States. Bravery is separated from Fool-hardiness not by the courage of the man, but by his wisdom.“

Our source indicated that some on the Privy Council would prefer at least some 'symbolic gesture' be made, including a public denunciation, but that these 'symbolic gestures' were rejected by the Governor-General as 'counter-productive'.
