USING SEPARATE BALLOTS FOR EACH OFFICE

     A separate ballot must be used for:

                    the office of chief elected official;
                    the offices of councillors;
                    the office of school trustee.


BALLOT FOR A VOTE ON A BYLAW OR QUESTION

     The wording on a ballot for a vote on a bylaw or question must be
determined by a resolution of the elected authority.  The form of the
ballot may be determined by a resolution of the elected authority, however
if no resolution is passed, the returning officer must determine the form.


ARRANGING THE NAMES ON THE BALLOTS

     The names of the candidates on each ballot must be arranged
alphabetically in order of the surnames and, if 2 or more candidates have
the same surname, the names of those candidates must be arranged
alphabetically in order of their given names.

     If an elected authority passes a bylaw 2 months before an election
that provides that ballots be printed in as many lots as there are
candidates for the office, section 43(3) of the Local Authorities Election
Act applies.


INDICATING THE NUMBER OF CANDIDATES THAT CAN BE VOTED FOR

     Every ballot used in an election for a member of an elected authority
must contain a brief explanatory note stating the maximum number of
candidates that can be voted for in order not to make the ballot void, and
every ballot used in an election for chief elected official must contain a
brief explanatory note stating that the ballot shall not be marked for more
than one (1) candidate.

vote at the time established for the institutional vote and, unless I am

BALLOT FOR A VOTE ON A BYLAW OR QUESTION

     The wording on a ballot for a vote on a bylaw or question must be
determined by a resolution of the regional authority.  The form of the
ballot may be determined by a resolution of the regional authority, however
if no resolution is passed the returning officer must determine the form.

ARRANGING THE NAMES ON THE BALLOTS

     The names of the candidates on each ballot must be arranged
alphabetically in order of the surnames and if 2 or more candidates have
the same surname, the names of those candidates must be arranged
alphabetically in order of their given names.

     If a regional authority passes a bylaw 2 months before an election
that provides that ballots be printed in as many lots as there are
candidates for the office, section 43(3) of the Local Authorities Act
applies.

INDICATING THE NUMBER OF CANDIDATES WHO CAN BE VOTED FOR

     Every ballot used in an election for a member of a regional authority
must contain a brief explanatory note stating the maximum number of
candidates who can be voted for in order not to make the ballot void.

timber dues for the timber cut are $1.40 per cubic metre of roundwood.

     (10)  If the Minister is satisfied that a percentage of coniferous
timber in an area is endangered by acts of nature or by development that is

5   Schedule 2 is amended by adding "115.1," after "114,".


6   The following is added after Schedule 6:


     SCHEDULE 7

     General Rate of Timber Dues for
     Coniferous Timber Used to Make
     Laminated Veneer Lumber

1(1)  The general rate of timber dues for coniferous timber that is used or
will be used to make laminated veneer lumber in a month in which the dues
determination activity occurs (in this Schedule referred to as the "payment
month") is calculated as follows:

     (a)  the producer of laminated veneer lumber (in this Schedule
referred to as "the producer") shall report to the Minister by the 10th day
of the month following the payment month the average mill net selling
price, free-on-board at the mill, received by the producer in the payment
month for its sales of laminated veneer lumber, green veneer and dry
veneer;

     (b)  the producer shall calculate the average mill net selling price
referred to in clause (a) by

               (i)  determining the producer's total revenue for the
payment month for laminated veneer lumber, green veneer and dry veneer,
adjusted to bring the revenues to a free-on-board basis by deducting any
shipping costs beyond the mill yard, but not deducting any discounts for
brokerage fees or early payments,

               (ii) converting any laminated veneer lumber sales in the
payment month measured in cubic feet to thousands of square feet on a 3/8
inch basis by multiplying the cubic feet volume by .032 and determining a
total volume of laminated veneer lumber sales in thousands of square feet
on a 3/8 inch basis for the payment month,

               (iii)     determining the volume of green and dry veneer
sales in the payment month in thousands of square feet on a 3/8 inch basis,

               (iv) dividing the total mill net revenues determined in
subclause (i) by the sum of the laminated veneer lumber sales volumes
determined in subclause (ii) and green and dry veneer sales volume
determined in subclause (iii), and

               (v)  where intra-corporate transfers or sales to
affiliates, associates and subsidiaries exceed 10% of the total value of
sales in the payment month, subtracting any intra-corporate transfers or
sales to affiliates from the calculation of the average mill net selling
price;

     (c)  the producer shall report by the 10th day of the month
following the payment month the mill capacity utilization level;

     (d)  the producer shall calculate the monthly mill capacity
utilization level referred to in clause (c) by dividing the total number of
days, to the nearest whole day, the laminated veneer lumber mill operated
in the payment month, and dividing that number by the potential operating
days in the corresponding month in Table 1, and multiplying that result by
100;

     (e)  subject to clause (f), the general rate of timber dues is the
amount shown in Table 2 at the intersection of the column corresponding to
the reported mill capacity utilization level and the row corresponding to
the monthly average mill net selling price for laminated veneer lumber and
veneers;

     (f)  where the producer reports mill capacity levels greater than
80% in 3 consecutive months, the general rate of dues payable per cubic
metre of roundwood is the amount shown in the right-hand column (80+% mill
capacity level) for all subsequent months.

(2)  For the purposes of subsection (1)(b)(v), "affiliate", "associate" and
"subsidiary" have the meanings given to them in the Business Corporations
Act.
