Ontario, Canada.—Representatives of the municipalities of Galt, Preston and Kitchener have asked the Ontario government to enter into agreements between the municipal corporations and the Grand River Railway, a subsidiary of the Canadian Pacific Railway, for an extension of the existing franchises. Under the old Beck act the municipal councils can give an extension only for a year without a vote of the people, and under the agreements signed in connection with Elmira, Galt, Preston and Hamilton radial system such an extension is further made subject to the Ontario Power Commission sitting as a court and hearing the views of other interested municipalities. Premier Drury promised consideration.
