Municipalities and the BNA Act.

Municipalities and the BNA Act.
An Act for the Union of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick, and the Government thereof; and for Purposes connected therewith.

Did you know that the only mention of 'municipalities' in the BNA Act (now The Constitution Act, 1867) is in THE FOURTH SCHEDULE. (Assets to be the Property of Ontario and Quebec conjointly.)

Municipalities share the same schedule as another more well established place of gathering at that time namely " Lunatic Asylums."

Wire, briar, limber-lock
Three geese in a flock
One flew east, one flew west
And one flew over the cuckoo's nest.
