Author: Morton, Arthur Silver
Title: [Resolution regarding the North West Territories.] 1884?
Description: 5 pages.
Notes: Part of a series of drafts of petitions and lists of grievances Jackson drew up for the settlers' committee. The material was copied by Cicely Plaxton and is somewhat fragmentary and disorganised. This resolution provides the economic and political reasons for the formation of provinces in the North-West Territories. It also explains why each province should have full control over its resources, internal administration and the election of representatives to Parliament.
