      Historique

      The national Royal Commission on Financial Arrangements Between the Dominion and the Maritime Provinces was created by the Committee of the Privy Council’s Order in Council (P.C. 2231) on September 14, 1934. Sir Thomas White, lawyer of Toronto, was appointed chairperson of the Commission, with Justice John Alexander Mathieson, Chief Justice of Supreme Court of Prince Edward Island, and Edward Walter Nesbitt of Woodstock, Ontario as co-commissioners. It was set up at the request of the three Maritime Premiers of the day: L.P.D. Tilley of New Brunswick, Angus L. Macdonald of Nova Scotia, and W.J.F. MacMillan of Prince Edward Island. Its mandate was to deal with the recommendation of the national Royal Commission on Maritime Claims of 1926 (also called the Duncan Commission), to change the financial arrangements under which the Maritime Provinces joined Confederation. The aim was for a more equitable sharing of revenues between the Maritimes and the rest of Canada. Sir White submitted their report to the Rt.Hon. R.B. Bennett, Prime Minister of Canada, on February 9, 1935. A dissenting opinion was submitted by Commissioner John A. Mathieson on February 16, 1935, and the Royal Commission disbanded.
