Power given to Provincial Treasurer

to purchase lands

CHAPTER 85

An Act to enable the Provincial Treasurer to purchase Certain Lands.

[Assented to February 3, 1922.]

WHEREAS by The Local Improvements Act the

Lieutenant Governor in Council is authorised to provide for the purchase and for the sale and distribution of seed grain and fodder to settlers and farmers in local improvement districts, as therein more particularly set forth, and the price of such seed grain and fodder is made a charge upon the land for the purposes of which it is advanced; and

Whereas, by The Local Improvement Districts Relief Act the Minister of Agriculture is authorised to make advances of flour, coal and fodder to farmers in such districts under certain conditions, and where an advance is made to take from the applicant a lien note or agreement in favour of the Provincial Treasurer, charging the lands of the applicant with repayment of the amount of the advance and interest; and

Whereas, the Lieutenant Governor in Council and the Minister of Agriculture have made advances under the above Acts in accordance with the terms thereof; and

Whereas, the lands charged with repayment of advances made under the above Acts may become the subject of foreclosure or sale proceedings by persons holding a previous charge thereon, and it is expedient to empower the Provincial Treasurer to purchase such lands for the protection of any advance made as herein before mentioned:

Now therefore His Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan, enacts as follows:

1.-(1) When an advance of seed grain or fodder has been made under The Local Improvements Act or an advance of flour, coal or fodder has been made under The Local Improvement Districts Relief Act, and proceedings have been taken for foreclosure or for sale of the lands charged with repayment of the amount of the advance by a person holding a previous charge against the property, the Provincial Treasurer, with the approval

of the Lieutenant Governor in Council, may, out of any moneys in the consolidated fund, purchase the lands so charged.

(2) This section shall apply to advances made and proceedings taken heretofore as well as to those made or taken hereafter.
