This Act is divided up into three Parts as follows: Part I outlines provisions implementing acts of the parliament of Canada; Part II deals with control of tillage and Part III contains general provisions. Section 2 authorises the municipality to do any act contemplated or required to be done to secure the rehabilitation or development of any agricultural area within the municipality. A municipality is to develop within that area; systems; farm practice; tree culture; water supply; land utilization; and land settlement, that will afford greater economic security. In order to do so a municipality may pass the necessary by-laws. The municipality powers are set out in section 2, including the power to purchase or expropriate land. Section 3 deals with Pasture gateways, and section 4 contains provisions concerning the detention and disposal of stray animals found on pastures. The Lieutenant Governor in Councils' powers to arrange rehabilitation and development can be found in section 6. Section 8 provides that a municipality may by by-law, provide for the regulation and control of tillage practices that, are liable to cause rapid soil deterioration by wind erosion. By virtue of section 9, orders may be made, requiring a person occupying any land, to give effect to a by-law. Where a person fails to comply, the council may, by its agent, enter upon the land affected by the order and perform the required work. If the occupant of the land is the owner thereof, the cost of the work done shall be added to, and form part of, the taxes on the land, (sect. 10).
