7. In a territory not subject to a designated agricultural region decree passed under the Act to preserve agricultural land (chapter P-41.1), this act does not, subject to sections 21 to 24, apply to the acquisition of farm land if, at the time of its acquisition by a non-resident, authorization has already been given by order in council of the Government or a municipal by-law for its use or acquisition for public utility by the Government, a government minister, an agency within the meaning of paragraph 12 of section 1 of the Act to preserve agricultural land, or an authorized expropriator.
The same rule applies in respect of farm land which,
(1) before its acquisition by a non-resident, had been acquired under the Act respecting municipal industrial immovables (chapter I-0.1);
(2) at the time of its acquisition by a non-resident, is adjacent to a public road on which water and sewer services were authorized by a municipal by-law passed before the date of the acquisition and lawfully approved.
The right set forth in subparagraph 2 of the second paragraph does not extend, however, beyond the bounds described in the third paragraph of section 105 of the Act to preserve agricultural land.
