Generally known as the Cotton debates as they were reported by John Cotton, a reporter for the Ottawa Times.
"Between 1870 and 1872 John Cotton of the Ottawa Times compiled a three volume set of Parliamentary Debates which are unofficial, non-verbatim from the two newspapers [Ottawa Times and Toronto Globe]. These are now known as the Cotton Debates. In addition the Library of Parliament compiled scrapbooks of the Debates from 1867-68 to 1874. Three volumes of these Scrapbook Debates have been edited by Dr. Peter Waite and published by the Library of Parliament [see CIHM no. 9_08054]"--Bishop, Olga. Canadian official publications.
