Interpretation

      4.         (1)        In the interpretation of this Act, a construction that would promote the aims expressed in section 2 is to be preferred to a construction that would not promote those aims.

(a)        the example is not to be taken to be exhaustive; and

(b)        if the example is inconsistent with the rest of the provision, the rest of the provision prevails.

                                (3)        Notwithstanding subsections 4(1) and (2) and the Schedule, nothing in this Act may be interpreted as inferring that a reference to “communication” is a reference to a communication effected other than by means of telecommunication.

 

PART 2  —  OWNERSHIP

Ownership of telecommunications facilities

      17.       Unless the circumstances indicate otherwise, a facility, or part of a facility, that is supplied, installed, maintained or operated by the Administration remains the property of the Administration, whether or not it has become (either in whole or in part) a fixture.

PART 3  —  POWERS TO ENTER LAND

Power to inspect land, etc

      18.       (1)        The Administration may —

(a)        for the purpose of determining whether any land is suitable for its purposes —

to do that thing.
