"More than ever was I convinced that the old way of seeing was inadequate to express this big country of ours, her depth, her height, her unbounded wideness, silences too strong to be broken - nor could ten million cameras, through their mechanical boxes, ever show real Canada. It had to be sensed, passed through live minds, sensed and loved."11 Emily Carr, Growing Pains: The Autobiography of Emily Carr (Toronto: Clarke, Irwin, 1966) 228.
