2. The Minister of Municipal Affairs, on the recommendation of the Commission municipale du Québec, is authorized to approve any by-law enacted by a municipal corporation for the carrying out of winter works.
The approval so given shall render the by-law incontestable and exempt from any other approval, either for the carrying out of the works or for any loan to meet the cost thereof.
Such approval is valid for the complete carrying out of the works provided for by the by-law even if continued after the end of the period during which they are subsidized as winter works.

Such sums shall not exceed the amount which serves as the basis in calculating the subsidy.
