4. Every investigation commissioner who is unable or expects to become unable to act may, by a writing over his signature, delegate his powers in any part of the territory for which he was appointed and for which no investigation commissioner or deputy commissioner is competent to act, to an investigation commissioner of an adjoining territory.
The writing shall specify the investigations or inquiries for which such powers are delegated, or indicate the period for which the delegation is valid.
A duplicate of the written delegation shall be transmitted forthwith to the clerk of the Court of Québec of the judicial district in which the investigation commissioner who delegates his duties is competent to act.
