158. Matters pending at the coming into force of this section are continued and decided by the Régie in accordance with this Act.
Within thirty days after the sending of a notice of the Régie to that effect, an application for a permit must, under pain of being dismissed, be amended in the following manner:
(1) in the case of an application for a hunting or fishing lodge permit, a trading post permit or a public carrier permit, the applicant must amend it so as to make it conform with the classes established by section 25;
(2) in the case of an application made by a natural person for the benefit of a third person, the latter person must take the place of the applicant.
An application for a reception permit is deemed to be an application for a reunion permit, and an application for an Olympic Stadium Permit is deemed to be an application for an “Olympic Grounds” permit.
Nothing in this section has the effect of shortening any period that may have begun to run nor of invalidating what may have already been validly done.
