SOLDIER SETTLEMENT ACT


Hon. W. A. GORDON (Minister of Immigration and Colonization) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 94, to amend the Soldier Settlement Act. Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Leader of the Opposition): Please explain.


CON

Wesley Ashton Gordon (Minister of Immigration and Colonization; Minister of Labour; Minister of Mines)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GORDON:

Mr. Speaker, this bill proposes to effect an amendment to the Soldier Settlement Act by rendering the lands now vested as to the legal title in the director of soldier settlement, liable for municipal taxes. The lands are now vested in the soldier settlement director as a corporation sole holding the lands as agent of the crown in the right of the dominion. The bill proposes that these lands, in so far as making them liable for municipal taxes is concerned, be held by the director as a corporation sole but not as agent for the dominion. The bill further contemplates that where proceedings are taken in the usual course by the municipality concerned and a sale is made for taxes the soldier shall have the right to redeem. That is the substance of the bill.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
