Mr. Fleming:

No. The minister's statement does not clarify the position in that regard. It assumes that the individual is entitled to recover. In the case I am putting forward the individual has obtained his judgment. He must. Then, because the defendant cannot be located or because the defendant has not the means to satisfy the judgment, the individual recovers in whole or in part from the unsatisfied judgments fund. That fund is then subrogated to his rights, and that is a provincial fund.
What is the position in that event? Is the province going to be denied the right of recovery because the individual has lost his right, the unsatisfied judgments fund having been subrogated thereto?
