PORCUPINE GOLDOR
MINES LIMITED ACT, 2008

Consideration of Bill Pr12, An Act to revive Porcupine Goldtop Mines Limited and to change its name to Porcupine Goldor Mines Limited.

The Chair (Mr. Michael Prue): We will call the meeting to order. We have before us Bill Pr12.

On the last occasion we heard from deputants, and there was a request made that we adjourn on that date in order that the government members could caucus to make a determination. It is now back to the portion in the agenda where we haveâ€"I guess I should first ask the parliamentary assistant if there are any comments from the government.

If the deputants wish, they can come forward, but I don't know that there's anything to be done today. But if you wish, okay.

Mr. Mario Sergio: Maybe they can tell us, Mr. Chairman, if they worked out any differences.

The Chair (Mr. Michael Prue): I am given to understand that the objector is not here today. He is aware of it but is no longer objecting.

Mr. Mario Sergio: All right. Thank you.

The Chair (Mr. Michael Prue): So I'm simply asking. You were the one who requested the adjournment.

Mr. Mario Sergio: Okay. No, that's fine.

The Chair (Mr. Michael Prue): So we're ready to proceed now.

Mr. Mario Sergio: Yes. Indeed, I am very pleased that the applicant has been able to work out the difficulties that they had with the application. As such, all the outstanding issues seem to be dealt with. I propose to move the application, as it has been proposed and amended.

The Chair (Mr. Michael Prue): You have to move an amendment if you're making one.

Mr. Mario Sergio: I move that section 3 of the bill be amended by striking out "the assets of either the corporation or the estate of Hugh Harold Sutherland" and substituting "the assets or the shares of either the corporation or the estate of Hugh Harold Sutherland."

The Chair (Mr. Michael Prue): Is there any discussion on the motion? Mr. Miller.

Mr. Paul Miller: Just a quick comment, Mr. Chair.

I'd like to thank Mr. Sutherland. I'm contacting all my distant relatives and hoping that they come up with something that I can tap into. Thanks very much for the tip. I'm sure there's something out there somewhere for me. Thank you.

Laughter.

Mr. Kim Craitor: He's got a sense of humour.

Mr. Bas Balkissoon: He's always looking out for himself.

The Chair (Mr. Michael Prue): Any other discussion on the motion? No other discussion on the motion? All those in favour of the motion, please signify. Opposed, if any? Carried.

Are the members ready to vote? Okay. I just have to go down through this.

Shall section 1 carry? Carried.

Shall section 2, as amendedâ€"

Interjections.

The Chair (Mr. Michael Prue): No, it's not amended?

Mr. Paul Miller: It's not amended.

The Chair (Mr. Michael Prue): I'm sorry, it's not amended. Okay, that was already done.

Shall section 3, as amended, carry? Carried.

Shall section 4 carry? Carried.

Interjection.

The Chair (Mr. Michael Prue): Yes, they all said, "Carried." Yes, they've all carried. On the transcript? I believe so. I'm going to rule that they have, and I hope they have. I was just asked the question.

Shall section 4 carry? Carried.

Shall section 5 carry? Carried.

Shall the preamble carry? Carried.

Shall the title carry? Carried.
