 51 Vic.
Petition—Columbia and Kootenay Railway.
To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of the
Province of British Columbia:
We, the undersigned voters and residents in West Kootenay, humbly represent to your
Honourable House :
That the Kootenay Lake and Fort Shepherd subdivisions of this district promises to be
one of the best silver and gold mining sections in the Province.
That there will be there this summer probably 1,000 to 1,500 prospectors.
That the mining produce of that section cannot be profitably marketed without a railway
through the gap from Kootenay Lake to the Columbia River.
That without a railway there, connected by steamboat with the Canadian Pacific Railway,
the trade of the Province and of Canada with that section will be carried on under the most
adverse conditions in the competition with the trade route to the United States, via Bonner's
Ferry, and in all probability will be wholly lost.
Your Petitioners therefore pray that your Honourable House may be pleased to regard
writh favour any application from responsible parties for the immediate construction of this
railway to facilitate and protect our mineral developement and our trade, and that your
Honourable House will grant such aid to the undertaking as your Honourable House with
wisdom may deem necessary.
And your Petitioners will ever pray.
