Mr. HENRI BOURASSA (Labelle) moved:
Copy of all papers and correspondence relating to the disallowance of chapters 11 and 14 of the statutes of 1900, province of British Columbia, viz.: ' An Act to regulate immigration into British Columbia,' and ' An Act relating to the employment on works carried on under franchises granted by Private Acts.'
He said : I may say that the papers which I wish specially to have laid before parliament are those relating to the request that has been made by the British authorities to the Canadian government to disallow this legislation. Of course, the papers should include all the correspondence that has taken place between the British government and the Canadian government and all the correspondence that has taken place between the Canadian government and the government of British Columbia ; so that we may know exactly where each of these
three governments stands upon the question of disallowance of provincial laws.
