As soon as such commissioners are elected, every ratepayer of the municipality belonging to the religious denomination of the dissentients, and who has either given the notice mentioned in sections 55 and 56, or who thereafter gives a notice in writing to the chairman of the commissioners and to the Minister that he withdraws from the control of the commissioners, shall be deemed to be a dissentient, and shall, for school purposes, be under the control of the dissentient school board.
So soon as the ratepayers who have signed one of the notices mentioned in the first paragraph of this section shall amount to two-thirds of the ratepayers of the municipality professing a religion different from that of the majority of the inhabitants thereof, then all the ratepayers of the municipality of the religious denomination of such dissentients, who have not given such notice, and who do not send their children to a school under the control of the commissioners, shall also be deemed dissentients.
This section shall apply to cases where commissioners of the dissentient school board are elected under the provisions of sections 61, 65 or 68.
