Clipping : "Borden Replies to Suffragettes / Candian Premier declines to aid cause in dominion." [August 28, 1912]

Description

Brief article about Canadian Prime Minister, Robert Borden's statement to suffragists that he had no power to introduce a measure granting women the right to vote in Canada.

In 1912, Prime Minister Borden met with a delegation of five members of the Women's Social and Political Union in the Savoy Hotel in London, England. Rachel Barrett, one of the delegates, warned him that British suffragettes might start a militant campaign in Canada. Borden's response was that the power rested with the nine provinces.
