John Graham Haggart

Conservative (1867-1942)

The southern boundary, of course, is a parallel of latitude, except the part that is near the coast. The question is this : If a crime is committed where it is impossible to fix the eastern boundary, is there equal jurisdiction in the courts of the North-west Territories and of the Yukon district for the trial of such a case ?
