Jesuits' Estates Act
Passed by the Mercier government in Quebec,
1888. Following the suppression of the Society of Jesus by the pope, in
1773, the property of the order in Canada became vested in the crown,
and was set apart for purposes of education in the province of Quebec.
By the British North America Act, it was vested in the provincial
government. The Mercier Act authorized payment of $400,000 as
compensation to the Jesuits for the lands confiscated by the crown. An
agitation in Ontario for disallowance of the Act, was followed by a
formal motion in the Dominion House, by Colonel O'Brien, but only
thirteen members voted for disallowance. =Index=: (Sir John A Macdonald era) Origin, 286;
