Continuation

1           Carleton Club (hereinafter referred to as "the corporation") is continued as a corporation consisting of those persons who are members on the coming into force of this Act and such other persons as shall hereafter become members.

Corporate powers

2           The corporation shall have a common seal, with power to make and alter the seal by by-law to that effect, and may purchase, acquire and hold real property within The City of Winnipeg for the actual use and occupation of the corporation and may sell, alienate, mortgage, lease, exchange and otherwise dispose of the real property of the corporation and apply the proceeds thereof for the purposes of the corporation.

Borrowing powers

3           The corporation may borrow money at such rate of interest and upon such terms as it things proper and may, for that purpose, make, execute or issue any mortgage, bonds, debentures or other instruments under the seal of the corporation which shall operate as a mortgage and charge against the lands and effects of the corporation as security for the loan.

Execution of mortgages, etc.

4           Any such mortgage, bond or debenture shall be sealed with the seal of the corporation and signed by the president, the honorary secretary and treasurer.

Liability of members

5           No member of the corporation shall be in any way liable for or chargeable with the payment of any debt or demand due by the corporation beyond the extent of the entrance fee and annual subscriptions remaining unpaid by the said member and for any unpaid accounts he may have incurred to the corporation for articles ordered by him upon its premises, and any member of the corporation not so indebted will be allowed to withdraw and will cease to be a member on giving notice to that effect according to the form that may be provided by the constitution, rules and regulations of the corporation, and from thenceforth be free from all debts and demands due by the corporation.
