185. The Transit Commission may cause to be sold at auction the moveable effects found in its vehicles or on its property and which have not been claimed within two months.
The sale shall not take place less than ten days after publication of a notice in a French language daily newspaper and in an English language daily newspaper, mentioning the nature of the effects and indicating the place where and the day and time when the sale is to be made.
The Commission shall then not be liable to the owner except for the proceeds of the sale, less the costs of preservation and sale. The owner’s claim in this respect shall be prescribed by one year from the date of the sale.
The Commission may give perishable effects found in such places and unclaimed within twelve hours to charitable institutions or undertakings.
It may also give any articles which have remained unsold at an auction to charitable institutions or undertakings.
In the case of the two preceding paragraphs, the Commission shall be free from any liability towards the owners of the effects concerned.
