DEBATES AND PROCEEDINGS OF THE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY OF NOVA SCOTIA. 1867.
THURSDAY, April 11.
- (p. 118)
Mr. Ross said that when the local constitution was under discussion he had made a few remark, and he noticed that in the report of the proceedings it was stated that he had advocated the system which allowed members to sit in both Parliaments. This was erroneous: he had merely said that in New Zealand such a system existed, and that in that colony the local superintendent was elected by the people. His conviction was that persons should not be allowed to sit in both the local and general Parliaments and therefore the bill met his approval.
