The Honourable the Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia. AA 4 REPORT ON ACTS.
P.C. 862.
Department of Justice, Canada.
Ottawa, April 26th, 1934.
To His Excellency the Governor-General in Council.
The undersigned has the honour to report that he has examined the Statutes of the Province
of British Columbia passed in the year 1933, and received by the Secretary of State of Canada
on the 27th April, 1933, and he is of the opinion that these Statutes may be left to such operation
as they may have.
On the 18th January, 1934, the Deputy Superintendent-General of Indian Affairs requested
the undersigned to consider whether chapter 74 of the said Statutes—" An Act to amend the
' Water Act' "—should not be disallowed because of certain objections thereto set forth in a
letter dated the 6th April, 1933, from Mr. C. E. Webb, District Chief Engineer of the Dominion
Water Power and Hydrometric Bureau, Vancouver, to Mr. J. T. Johnston, Director and Chief
Engineer, Hydrometric Bureau, Department of Interior, and in a letter dated the 23rd October,
1933, from Assistant Commissioner Perry to the Secretary, Department of Indian Affairs.
Since the letter of the Deputy Superintendent-General of Indian Affairs of January 18th,
1934, was written, that Department has been in further communication with the Provincial
authorities with a view to having such amendments made as will obviate the difficulties which
arise under the Act as it now stands, and, in the expectation that the Province will be readily
disposed to meet the reasonable suggestions of the Superintendent-General of Indian Affairs,
the undersigned is of opinion that it would be better to leave the Act to such operation as it may
have, in the hope that suitable amendments will be made, rather than to recommend the exercise
of the power of disallowance.
The undersigned recommends that a copy of this report, if approved, be transmitted to the
Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia for the information of his Government.
Humbly submitted.
(Sgd.)    H. Guthrie,
Minister of Justice.
