Christy, Samuel
Samuel Christy, a British MP who opposed the grant of Vancouver Island to the Hudson’s Bay Company, submitted an address in the House of Commons on 14 August 1848 (amended 16 August) that called for the presentation of naval reports concerning the prospect of mining coal on the island. Its intent was to gather more information to oppose the grant. The reports were eventually produced and printed in a return dated 7 March 1849.
