Charles A. Stewart (Minister of Immigration and Colonization; Minister of Mines; Minister of the Interior; Superintendent-General of Indian Affairs)


Mr. STEWART (Argenteuil) :

I hav<
discussed this matter with Mr. Graham and the deputy minister, and we have decided that as fast as the Indians are able to take this land and farm it under the supervision of the agents, they will be allowed to do so. In the meantime, a very considerable portion of it will have to be farmed under the supervision of Mr. Graham. There are some four hundred odd acres in the vicinity of Regina, which it is the intention of the department to continue as an experimental and demonstration farm. The rest will be turned over to the Indians as fast as they are able to take the land.
