Progressive Conservative

Mr. Flemming (Vicloria-Carlelon):

Mr. Chairman, in answer to the hon. gentleman, I am sure he is familiar with the general process of making bylaws in companies. Bylaws can run to 25 or 30 in number, even from my limited knowledge of company law, so as to regulate the activities of a company, its staff, and other matters. I cannot see any other way of doing it except in a general way, as this language indicates, namely, to say "for the conduct of its activities, including the establishment of advisory and other committees-". I think that later on, when the duties are set forth in a little more detail, the need for specific bylaws will become even more apparent. I do not know how helpful I have been, but I have tried to be as helpful as possible.
