 51 Vic. Petition—Sumas Dyking Act (against.) 475
PETITION.
To the Honourable the Speaker and Members   of the Legislative Assembly of the
Province of British Columbia.
The humble petition of the undersigned landowner of Matsqui Prairie respectfully
sheweth:—
That notice has been given of a Bill to be brought before your Honourable House for the
repeal of the Sumas Dyking Act of 1878, and of the Amendment thereto of 1883.
That your Petitioner owns land affected by the overflow of the Fraser River, which lands
may be kept from such overflow by repairing the present dyke under the provisions of the said
Acts.
That he is given to understand that arrangements are being made for resuming work upon
the present dyke under the provisions of the said Acts.
That he fears that the repeal of the said Acts may have the effect of staying the work of
repairing the dyke.
That he does, therefore, with all due respect, protest against the repeal of the said Acts,
and prays that the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly do not
consent to allow the said Acts to be repealed during the present Session.
And your Petitioner, as in duty bound, will ever pray, &c.
Thos. D. Lindsay.
VICTORIA: Printed by Richard Wolfendes Government Printer,
