But until 1883 it remained beyond the power of the dominion government to reform effectively extradition. In the absence of a new Anglo-American treaty, Canadian authorities attempted to reform domestic legislation, but throughout the 1870s and early 1880s, imperial authorities suppressed, delayed, and rewrote dominion law, bringing it into line with Britain's shifting policy. The long process of reform illustrated London's continuing power over Canadian affairs.
