Hon. J. W. EDWARDS (Frontenac-Addington):
I have the honour to present a
petition, addressed to the Prime Minister, the cabinet and members of the House of Commons, earnestly requesting that their natural resources be transferred to the prairie provinces at the earliest possible moment, without restrictions or limitations of the said provinces as to the complete control of their educational or other local affairs. The petition is signed by fifty electors of Chatsworth, Ontario; by fifty-seven electors of Lambton county, Ontario; by twenty-one electors of Kamloops, British Columbia; by fifty-two electors of Walkerton, Ontario; and by sixty-two electors of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.
