Mr. Green:

Clause 17 is the one giving the corporation the power to expropriate. Was that power contained in the old act or is this a new provision?

Mr. Benidickson:

I would think that would be in the old act. I have not got it before me, but of course that is similar to other acts that have been passed by the house, notably the port of Alberni act to which I referred.

There appears to be no limit on the borrowing powers of the corporation. Is it not customary to set some ceiling?
