Mr. Henderson:

In the committee it was

felt that the original title might be somewhat misleading to the people and not in the interests of the Canadian people as a whole, so it was decided that another name should be substituted therefor. With the approval of the superintendent of insurance, I believe, and after a review of his records, it was considered that Great Lakes Reinsurance Company as a title would not be to the prejudice of the Canadian people.

Mr. Henderson:

I believe the hon. member for Fraser Valley asked a question as to the par value of the stock. As I understand it the Canadian and British Insurance Companies Act provides that if not otherwise provided in the bill the par value shall be $100, and it is not otherwise provided in this bill.

Mr. Henderson:

Mr. Speaker, the purpose of the bill is to incorporate this company to carry on the business of insurance and reinsurance as is outlined in the title and in the bill. I might say that reinsurance is a common practice in the insurance business. I am told that the present intention of the principals is that their business will be along the line of reinsurance to begin with, and they will do business in all types of insurance save and except life insurance. The bill is drafted in the usual form and complies with the Canadian and British Insurance Companies Act. I understand it has the approval of the superintendent of insurance and I recommend that it be accorded second reading and referred to the banking and commerce committee.

Mr. Henderson:

I believe the capital set-up is contained in section 7 of the bill. There can be no meeting of the directors until $100,000 has been subscribed in bona fide subscriptions, and no business will be commenced until $250,000 has been subscribed in a bona fide manner.
