House of Commons, 22 April 1870, Canadian Confederation with Manitoba



Some Bills from the Senate were forwarded a stage, and in reply to
Mr. Mackenzie.
Hon. Sir John A. Macdonald said the report of the Commissioners to the North-West had been printed and placed in the hands of the Government, who had intended to bring it down to-day; but they had been so pressed for time that they had not yet been able to read it; some portions of them, it would be obvious, could not with due regard to the public interests, be placed before the House. The other parts he expected to bring down tomorrow.
The House adjourned at 10:50 p.m., till 7:30 p.m. tomorrow.
