7. The side lines of lots in a township shall be established and traced on the azimuth or bearing of the lines which, in the instructions for the survey of such township, is indicated as governing the side lines in each range which it affects. This guiding line shall be either one of the outside lines of the township or a central line, or some other line, according as the side lines of the lots are shown, on official plans deposited among records of surveys, as lines parallel to one or other of such lines.
This means of establishing the side lines of lots shall be the only one followed in townships surveyed after 25 April 1908 (the date of the coming into force of chapter 61 of the statutes of 1908).
