Mr. SPEARMAN:

That was my point,

namely that in provinces where there is provincial protection a man is not protected either under the provision for sixty days or ninety days on the one hand or by the provincial legislation on the other until such time as the proposal has not only been filed but finally confirmed and filed in the courts.

Mr. SPEARMAN:

In my province, for

example, the creditor himself must make application to the provincial debt adjustment officials for the right to proceed in court. In other words all1 farm debtors are protected against proceedings except under special permission granted to the creditors. My question was whether this provincial protection remained until such time as the proposal was not only made but was accepted and filed in the courts.

Mr. SPEARMAN:

At what point in the

proceedings does a debtor making a proposal come within the provisions of the bankruptcy laiw and void his protection under any provincial legislation? As I understand it the bankruptcy law itself applies only after the proposal has been confirmed and filed with the court. Up to that time, and even after the proposal has been made but while it is still under consideration, any provincial legislation still would be available to the debtor, would it not? In Alberta they have legislation which prevents court proceedings unless and until the creditor has received power from the board to proceed in the courts. I assume that legislation still would be available up to the time the proposal was accepted and confirmed, so that the man making the proposal would not have voided his protection under the provincial law until his proposal under this act was confirmed and filed in the courts.

That was my question. Must he? And I understood the minister to say he must.

Mr. SPEARMAN:

Yes, but I was referring to the other point, that apart from anything in this act providing for a stay of proceedings in some provinces the debtors

Farmers' Creditors Act

are now under the protection of provincial legislation under which proceedings can take place only by permission of certain courts or tribunals. As I understand it the protection of that provincial legislation is not voided by the debtor until the proposal has been agreed to, confirmed and filed in the courts as a completed proposal. Is that a fact?
