p.2 Parliament of Canada, Monday Feb. 20th - Mr. Mackenzie moved for correspondence on the St. Clair Flats Canal. He said, when the American Government, in 1863 and 1864, were building this canal, it was soon found that a portion of the works were on the Canadian side. It was the opinion of all navigators, and of several distinguished United States officers, that the Canal is wholly within our lines. He trusted the Government would yield neither that or any other right connected with our territory. If this matter is yielded, we are absolutely without a channel on this side of Walpole Island, and we could not send a vessel from one lake to another.
Sir John A. Macdonald said the correspondence was not complete.
