Town of Markdale.
Markdale Standard (Markdale, Ont.), 8 Dec 1887, p. 4

Full Text

A meeting of Markdale citizens was held on Friday evening last at the call of the Police Trustees to consider the question of Incorporation. The attendance of the representative men was good and a lively interest taken in the project. The meeting was unanimously in favor of Incorporation, but a difference of opinion was expressed as to whether Incorporation as a town by special Act5, or as a village, through the County Council, would be the most advisable. The question was freely discussed and a vote taken resulting in an almost unanimous decision in favor of raising the place to the status of a town by special Act of Parliament, and a committee appointed to attend to detail. A notice will soon appear in the Official Gazette to the effect that an Act will be applied for at the next session of the Ontario Parliament for above purpose.
