February 26, 1901

Mr. REID (Grenville).

I would draw the attention of the hon. Postmaster General to the fact that a petition has been presented from a part of my constituency asking for a post office to be erected in the township of Edwardsburg. The people have been agitating to have a post office there for some years, but although it is a very thickly settled district, they have not been able to get it as yet. Consequently they are obliged to travel quite a distance for their mail, and I understand that an arrangement has been submitted to the Postmaster General by which the route could be changed without any extra expense and give them this post office asked for. A number of people have expressed their willingness to take charge of the post office, and I hope the hon. gentleman will try and accommodate that section. He could do so without any extra expense. It would be a great convenience to the people to be able to get their daily paper and keep in touch with the times.

Topic:   SUPPLY-THE CORONATION OATH.
Subtopic:   VISIT OF THEIR ROYAL HIGHNESSES THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CORNWALL AND YORK.
