VICTORIA RATEPAYERS PETITION

(requiring ratepayers consent on expenditures for municipal buildings)

from the Sessional Papers of the British Columbia Government, 1878

extracted by Hugh Armstrong
7 Mar 2004


    PETITION
    To the Honourable Mr. Speaker and the Honourable the Members of the Legislative Assembly.

    The humble Petition of the undersigned ratepayers of the City of Victoria sheweth: That it is in the contemplation of the Municipal Council of Victoria to expend a large portion of the municipal revenue in the erection of a City Hall, or other building, for municipal purposes, without the consent of the ratepayers, and without making due provision for the ordinary and necessary sanitary and street works and lighting of the city. Your petitioners, therefore, humbly pray that your Honourable House will make and pass such laws as shall effectually prevent the Municipal Council of the City of Victoria from expending any portion of the revenue of the said city in the erection of any municipal building, without having first obtained the consent of the ratepayers. And your petitioners will ever pray, etc.
