Faults and Failures of the Late Presbyterian Union in Canada

Excerpt from Faults and Failures of the Late Presbyterian Union in Canada The facts contained in the following pamphlet, although of comparatively limited interest in themselves, throw a light on the pretensions of the subordinate legislatures in Canada to deal with trusts and property of all kinds, over which they assume to exercise complete control. 'the clause of the British North America Act, empowering local legislatures to deal with questions affecting property and civil rights, is held to justify the confiscation of private property and its transference to any one selected by the irresponsible decision of these legislative bodies, which are already numerous, and which may be added to indefinitely as the Great N orth-west is settled and new provinces carved out of its territories. Apparently, if the claims set up on their behalf are to be held as correct, the only security any man, or set of men, can have for retaining his or their property is its insignificant value not making it worth coveting. The history of the Trust given in the following pages will serve to show the truth of this statement, as it is believed that the proof of the origin and ownership of the Fund in question is complete. I shall offer no apology for the manner in which the history of the Trust is traced. I have tried to give the facts as clearly as possible, together with the evidence. If they offend the delicate susceptibilities of any, the facts must be blamed, not the narrator of them. In dealing with these, it has not been possible to avoid mentioning the names of actors in the events spoken of but no statement has been made that has not, I believe.
