Sir GEORGE FOSTER:

Given by the Canadian Government in respect of the three months' notice. The House should know

that the French Government gave notice of the denunciation of the Treaty itself some fifteen months ago. After that an arrangement was made at the instance of the Canadian Government by which the Treaty should go on temporarily subject to three months' notice by either party to the arrangement. In view of the possible denunciation of the Treaty on three months' notice, it was not possible to carry on business because more time is required in the usual making of contracts and arrangements for the interchange of produce between the two countries. In view of the contemplated tariff legislation of this Parliament the Canadian Government decided to give notice of termination which, as I have said, will expire on the 19th of this month. The French Government has been informed that the Canadian Government is ready to take up negotiations at any time circumstances are opportune therefor.

Topic:   THE FRENCH TREATY.
