Mr. C. H. CAHAN (St. Lawrence-St. George):
Mr. Speaker, I wish to ask of the
acting leader of the government a question which I think is of very grave public importance. In view of the decision of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council awarding to
Old Aac Pensions
the Dominion of Newfoundland an immense area of the mainland of British North America which naturally forms a part of the Dominion of Canada, will this government forthwith take into its favourable consideration the acquisition by purchase from the government of Newfoundland of the territory so awarded to the Dominion of Newfoundland, so that Canadian citizens resident in that territory and their large financial investments and other interest therein may continue under the legislative and administrative jurisdiction of Canada?
