Mr. GEOFFRION.

No such provision is made in this Bill. It is simply an amending Bill, and will have the effect, in the province of Quebec, when a sale is ordered by the Exchequer Court, of giving a clear title to the purchaser of the property, the same as in the case of a sale made by a sheriff. Otherwise, under the Act as it stands, a sale ordered by the Exchequer Court could not be attended with a clear title to the property. It is almost certain that under the sale ordered by the Exchequer Court a clear title could not be given. That is the opinion of the court, as I understand it; and, as the Act is unworkable, we want to remedy it as far as the province of Quebec is concerned, so that the sale ordered by the court may have the same effect as if it were a sheriff's sale.
