If the jurisdiction mentioned in the resolution under section 3 and passed by a regional county municipality is a jurisdiction acquired by the regional county municipality pursuant to article 678.0.1 of the Municipal Code of Québec (chapter C‐27.1), the right to not be subject to such jurisdiction granted by the Municipal Code, hereinafter referred to as the “right of withdrawal”, may be exercised, with the modifications set out in the second and third paragraphs, even after the expiry of the time prescribed, if any, in the resolution referred to in subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of article 678.0.2 of that Code.
Where the jurisdiction mentioned in the resolution under section 3 constitutes only part of the jurisdiction acquired by the regional county municipality, the right of withdrawal may be exercised in respect of the whole of the jurisdiction acquired or in respect of only the part mentioned in the resolution.
