This chapter explores the North Atlantic as a space for loyalist network-building that connected the politics and identities forged within Canadian localities with those in Ireland and mainly in its northern province, Ulster. The tour, that took in both Canada and the United States, was undertaken by two representatives of the newly minted Ulster Loyal and Anti-Repeal Union (ULARU): Rev. R.R. Kane, an Anglican minister from Belfast, and George Hill Smith, an Armagh barrister. The chapter presents a more nuanced picture of the cartography of 'Irish diasporic space' in North America by considering the Canadian and loyalist contexts. The Canada- and Ireland-specific conceptions of loyalty thus combined with the trans-imperial discourse of 'British liberties' to structure rationales for why British imperialism had been a force for good in the world.
