(2) In addition to the initial capital provided for in the next preceding subsection, the board shall issue capital stock in shares of one dollar each, which shares shall be subscribed for by the government of Canada from time to time as loans are made under this act to an amount equal to five per cent of the said loans, so that the total amount subscribed under this subsection shall equal at any time as nearly as may be, five per cent of the total amount of principal outstanding on loans theretofore made, the same to be called for by the board as required.

(3) The minister may purchase at a price not exceeding the par value thereof, the capital stock issued by the board to any province and for the purpose of such purchase, the minister may make the necessary expenditure out of any unappropriated moneys in the consolidated revenue fund.

(4) The board may retire the outstanding capital stock subscribed by borrowers under the act. by crediting the amount of the par value of the stock subscribed by the borrower as a payment upon the borrower's indebtedness under his loan from the board, and when so credited, the borrower shall thereupon cease to be a stockholder of the board."
