I give notice that I will move that the following clause be added to section 27:
That section 27 be amended by adding after the words * twenty-four ' in the 26th line thereof, the following:
And townships 18 to 44, both inclusive, between the first meridian on the east to Lakes Manitoba and Lake Winnipegosis on the west.
This includes the area immediately west of the area described by the hon. member for Selkirk (Mr. S. J. Jackson.)
Townships 16 to 34, ranges 9 to 16, both inclusive; townships 23 to 44, both inclusive, from ranges 17 to 24, both inclusive, and townships 29 to 44 in ranges 25 to 29, both inclusive.
In this territory the land is all taken by the railway company, and any land that is left in any of those townships would not be available so far as this motion is concerned, because, wherever the railway company did take land, they took more than eight sections; therefore whatever land is left in those townships would not be available for the purpose of this motion.
