Georgeson noted the comment made on the inactivity of the provincial gov- ernments regarding the resolutions sent to them. He thought the asso- ciation should show its' appreciation of the minister of the interior in this matter. While not agreeing with them in all matters, Mr. Oliver had given splendid attention to the matters i drawn to by the asso- ciatioa and had -been conscientious and painstaking. He hoped now that the Alberta provincial government had got their political troubles straightened out they would be able to give attention, to the matters that would be called to their attention.
