Prior to the amalgamation of East Windsor, Walkerville, Windsor and Sandwich under The City of Windsor (Amalgamation) Act 1935, those four Municipalities functioned separately and each owed large amounts to the public. All four Municipalities were in default for payment of part of the principal owing on their several debts, the default having occurred in the case of East Windsor on October 1st, 1931, Sandwich on March 1st, 1932, Windsor on December 1st, 1932, and Walkerville on December 14th, 1934. The first three Municipalities were also in default for payment of interest. In 1935 the City of Windsor (Amalgamation) Act, 1935, was passed for the purpose of amalgamating the four Municipalities and providing a solution for the problems created by the above defaults.
