Questions

Whereas by an agreement bearing date the twenty-fifth day of October, 1910, made by and between His Majesty King George V, in right of his province of British Columbia, represented by the Honourable Richard McBride as his trustee, of the one part, and that band of Indians known as the "Songhees tribe," of the other part, it was agreed that, upon the terms and conditions therein mentioned the said tribe of Indians would remove from the tract of land on which they resided within the confines of the city of Victoria, British Columbia, and commonly known as the "Songhees Reserve," and would transfer to his said majesty, in right of this province, all their claims for rights in and improvements on the lands within the boundaries of the said "Songhees Reserve":

And whereas by the terms of union under which British Columbia was admitted into the Dominion of Canada, Canada agreed to assume and defray the charges for a Marine hospital at said city of Victoria; and which marine hospital has been erected and maintained on land within the boundaries of said Songhees Reserve:

And whereas it is necessary, for the carrying-out of the purposes for which such Indian reserve is being acquired as aforesaid, that the lands and premises now occupied by or held in connection with such marine hospital should be rendered available forthwith to his said majesty, in right of this province.

And whereas there are two public hospitals in or near said city of Victoria, both of which are available to take care of any patients whom it has been customary to send to such marine hospital:

Therefore, be it resolved, That this house deems it to be in the public interests of this province that the said marine hospital should be closed, and that the lands and premises occupied thereby or used or held in connection therewith should be transferred by the dominion government to his majesty the king, in right of this province; and that this house will consider it a satisfactory performance of the terms of union, in so far as the maintenance of said marine hospital is concerned, if the said Dominion of Canada arranges for the erection of a marine hospital elsewhere within the city of Victoria, or, in the alternative, for the work now being carried on at the present marine hospital to be carried on in either or both of such other existing hospitals:

And that an humble address be presented to His Honour the Lieutenant-Governor, praying him that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to His Excellency the Governor General in Council.

The foregoing resolution was approved by order in council P.C. 590, of the government of British Columbia, on the 8th March, 1911, and was confirmed by federal order in council P.C. 2579, dated 14th November, 1911. The last named order in council reported that arrangements had been made with the St. Joseph's hospital, Victoria, for the treatment care of all sick seamen arrived at Victoria, entitled to relief under the provisions of the Canada Shipping Act. The actual transfer of patients was effected on the 24th April, 1911.
