Progressive Conservative

I might point out to the minister that Charlottetown was the scene of an important conference at which maritime union was discussed. This led to an important and wonderful event, the confederation of the British North American colonies, and I should like to take the opportunity of suggesting that the first meeting of this board should take place in the historic city where it all began.
