I have the honour to inform the house that I have received communications from several members notifying me that the following vacancies have occurred in the representation, viz:
Of Right Hon. Ian Alistair Mackenzie, member for the electoral district of Vancouver Centre, consequent upon his being summoned to the senate.
Of William Edmund Newton Sinclair, Esquire, member for the electoral district of Ontario, by decease.
I have accordingly issued my warrants to the chief electoral officer to make out new writs of election for the said electoral districts respectively.
