2. The Government may, on the recommendation of the Minister and upon the petition of a school board governed in whole or in part by a special Act, order that the provisions of such special Act be replaced in whole or in part by those of this Act, or strike from such special Act any provision for which this Act contains no corresponding provision. Such changes shall have the same force and effect as if made by statute.
Such petition cannot be submitted to the Government unless a notice summarizing its object has been published at least one month beforehand in the Gazette officielle du Québec; a public notice must be given within the same delay in accordance with sections 281 and following.
The Minister shall cause the order in council to be published in the Gazette officielle du Québec with a notice stating the date of its coming into force. The Québec Official Publisher shall insert in the volume of the statutes for each year a table giving the date of the coming into force of the orders passed by the Government under this section and the legislative provisions that they repeal.
