Sir LOMER GOUIN:

I have an amendment to offer to this section. The first clause provides for an appeal on interlocutory and final judgments in mining property cases. I do not think it would be advisable to permit appeals on interlocutory judgment; we should limit the appeal to final judgments. I therefore propose to amend the clause so that it will read:
1. Section forty-six of the Yukon Act, chapter sixty-three of the Revised Statutes of Canada, 1908, as enacted by section two of chapter fifty-six of the statutes of 1912, is amended by adding at the end of subsection two thereof the following:-"or if the action be for the recovery of a claim, mining property, mineral claim or location, as defined by the Yukon Placer Mining Act, chapter sixty-four of the Revised Statutes of Canada, 1906, or by the regulations for 'the disposal of quartz mining claims on Dominion lands in the Yukon territory, or of any interest therein or to establish title thereto, or for the definition of or establishment of the boundaries of any such claim, mining property, mineral claim or location, or to establish the right of a claimant to any such claim, raining property, mineral claim or location or interest therein, or to have included within said claim, mining property, mineral claim or location, any land or property, or if the action be for divorce or judicial separation.

Yukon Act

This will give an appeal in mining property cases for final judgments only.
