DIVISION VII
PUBLIC DEBT
59. The Government may, as the interests of Québec require, change the form of any part of the then existing public debt including any debentures for which the Government is liable, by substituting one class of public securities for another or for such debentures, provided that the capital of the debt be not increased.
No such substitution shall be made unless the consent of the holder of the public security for which another is substituted is obtained, or unless such security is previously purchased or redeemed by or on account of the Government.
Such substitution may also be made by the sale of one class of public securities and the purchase of those for which it is desired to substitute them.
1970, c. 17, s. 59; 1977, c. 5, s. 14.
60. The Government may authorize the Minister to effect the loans required:
(a)  for the purposes contemplated by section 59;
(b)  for the purpose of renewing or of paying at maturity or of redeeming prior to maturity the whole or any part of any loan or loans effected by the Government;
(c)  for the raising of such moneys as the Government deems requisite for the purpose of meeting any deficiency in the consolidated revenue fund or providing for expenditures to be made therefrom;
(d)  for the purposes contemplated by section 69.5.
The provisions of paragraph b shall not be interpreted as conferring authority to redeem a loan prior to maturity in the absence of a stipulation of the right to do so or the consent of the creditors.
1970, c. 17, s. 60; 1977, c. 5, s. 14; 1990, c. 66, s. 3.
61. The Government may, in case of need, authorize the Minister of Finance to effect any required temporary loans, chargeable to the consolidated revenue fund; such loans shall not exceed the amount of the deficiency in the consolidated revenue fund to meet the charges placed thereon by law, and shall not be employed for any other purposes.
The Government may also authorize the Minister of Finance to effect any temporary loans required for the purposes of section 69.5.
1970, c. 17, s. 61; 1990, c. 66, s. 4.
62. The loans effected under this division shall be so made for such term, at such interest rates, in such manner and form and for such amounts as the Government determines.
Such loans may also be effected within the framework of a borrowing plan authorized by the Government, of which the maximum amount and the characteristics and limits considered necessary by the Government in relation to the loans effected under the plan shall be established by the Government. The Government may then generally authorize the Minister to conclude any borrowing transaction under the plan, to establish amounts and other characteristics thereof, and to agree to the terms and conditions relating to each transaction, including those relating to the currency of payment and registration of the securities.
Such loans shall not be employed except for the purposes contemplated by this division.
1970, c. 17, s. 62; 1990, c. 88, s. 2.
63. The Government may authorize the Minister to make withdrawals from the consolidated revenue fund annually, up to an amount sufficient to create an adequate sinking-fund to provide for the redemption of any loan effected under this division.
Whenever a loan of the Government, under whatever authority effected, for which a sinking-fund has been provided, is redeemed prior to maturity or renewed or paid at maturity, the Government may authorize the Minister to transfer such sinking-fund or any part thereof and make it applicable to another loan effected or to be effected, in whole or in part, for the purpose of redeeming prior to maturity or of renewing or of paying at maturity the loan for which such sinking-fund has been provided or of funding any temporary loan effected for the purpose of such redemption, renewal or payment or any renewal of such temporary loan.
The contributions to and revenues from such sinking-funds shall be invested or deposited by the Minister, who shall report thereon to the Government.
1970, c. 17, s. 63; 1977, c. 5, s. 14.
64. Every loan of the Government, by whatsoever legislative provisions authorized, may be effected, and the debentures or other securities issued in respect thereof may be made payable, in such currency and on such terms as the Government determines. Notwithstanding section 8, any document relating to such loan may be signed, on behalf of the Government, by any person appointed by the Government.
Whenever an Act of Parliament authorizing the Government to effect a loan limits the amount thereof, such amount shall be deemed to be the face amount of the debentures or other securities issued in respect of such loan, without regard to any premium which may be payable upon redemption and notwithstanding that such debentures or other securities may be sold at a premium or at a discount; and such act shall be deemed to authorize the borrowing of money either in United States funds or in Canadian funds, notwithstanding any difference in value existing between them at the time of the loan or thereafter.
1970, c. 17, s. 64; 1977, c. 5, s. 14.
65. Whenever the Government contracts a loan under a legislative provision which limits the rate of interest payable on such loan, the Government, notwithstanding such legislative provision, may determine with respect to such loan a rate of interest exceeding such limit, if it deems it necessary by reason of the condition of the financial market.
1970, c. 17, s. 65; 1977, c. 5, s. 14.
66. The consolidated revenue fund shall be charged with the loans which may be effected under this division and with the interest on and cost of such loans and the sinking-funds established for their redemption.
