HER MAJESTY, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba, enacts as follows:
The Government of Manitoba, represented by the Minister of Highways, or by any other member of the Executive Council designated for that purpose by order of the Lieutenant Governor in Council, may
(a) enter into an agreement with the Government of Canada, or with any minister of the Crown representing the Government of Canada, providing for the construction, reconstruction, maintenance, and repair, of that part of a trans-Canada highway lying within the province; and
(b) do all things necessary or expedient to carry out any such agreement in conjunction with the Government of Canada; and in particular may institute and carry out such measures as are practicable and necessary for the construction, reconstruction, maintenance, and repair, of that part of a trans-Canada highway lying within the province.
Every highway, road, or other work begun, constructed, reconstructed, maintained, or repaired, under this Act or an agreement made under this Act, is a provincial trunk highway within the meaning of The Highways and Transportation Department Act; and that Act applies thereto except in so far as may be expressly provided to the contrary in the agreement.
All moneys required to be expended for the purpose of carrying out an agreement made under section 1 shall be paid from moneys authorized by an Act of the Legislature to be paid and applied for, or in respect of, highways, works incidental thereto, and rights-of-way therefor.
