 518 Petition of Comox Setteers. 1881
PETITION.
To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislature of British Columbia in Parliament assembled.
Whereas we the undersigned residents in the Electoral District of Comox humbly
pray that your honourable House may take into your earliest consideration the advisability of withdrawing the reserve now existing upon the twenty-mile belt of land along
the East Coast of Vancouver Island, more especially that portion of said twenty mile
belt lying between Nanaimo and Seymour Narrows, inasmuch as the said reserve has
very materially retarded the progress of settlement in our district and along tho coast,
and has also been a barrier to the development of our extensive coal fields, thereby
depriving us of a near market for our agricultural products, and relieving us from the
many disadvantages under which we suffer from our present isolated situation from a
remunerative market.
And your petitioners will ever pray.
George F. Drabble,
George Grieve,
Jas. Eobb,
And sixty-three others.
Comox, January 12th, 1881.
