Government of Nova Scotia
Orders In Council
October 1996

96-728  to  96-801


Note: In some of these Orders In Council, mention is made of a physical
measurement, usually a length or distance, or an area, which is given in
Imperial units, the measurement system in general use in Canada until the
1970s.  The Imperial system was abandoned some decades ago, and these
obsolete units of measure are now unfamiliar to a considerable proportion
of the population.  As time goes by, more and more people will be uncertain
of the correct interpretation or translation of Imperial into modern measures.
To assist the reader's understanding, where Imperial measures occur in the
text, immediately following I have inserted, in [square brackets] the modern
equivalent.  For example, 17.79 acres [7.199 hectares].

It should be understood that these insertions are not part of the original text.
Any errors in these conversions are my responsibility.

B. And whereas subsection 46(1) and clause 52(1)(b) of the Provincial Finance Act, R.S.N.S., 1989, Chapter 365, read, respectively, as follows:

46 (1)   Whenever, in any statute passed by the Legislature, authority is given to the Governor in Council to borrow or raise by way of loan, loan agreement or the issue of securities any sum of money, unless there is some provision to the contrary in the statute by which such authority is given, such sum may be borrowed at such times as the Governor in Council determines by the issue and sale of debentures which may be for such separate sums, may bear interest at such rate or rates and may be payable as to principal and interest at such time or times and at such place or places as the Governor in Council determines.

52 (1)   Where in this Act or in any other Act whether heretofore or hereafter passed, authority is given to borrow or raise by way of loan a specific number of dollars, or to issue debentures or other securities for a specific number of dollars in principal amount, every such authority shall be deemed to authorize
