Civil Law Notary
CIVIL-LAW NOTARIES, or LATIN NOTARIES, are lawyers of noncontentious private civil law who draft, take, and record legal instruments for private parties, provide legal advice and give attendance in person, and are vested as public officers with the authentication power of the State. Unlike notaries public , their common-law counterparts, civil-law notaries are highly trained, licensed practitioners providing a full range of regulated legal services, and whereas they hold a public office, they nonetheless operate usually—but not always—in private practice and are paid on a fee-for-service basis. They often receive the same education as attorneys at civil law but without qualifications in advocacy, procedural law , or the law of evidence , somewhat comparable to solicitor training in certain common-law countries

Conservative Party Of Canada (historical)
The CONSERVATIVE PARTY OF CANADA has gone by a variety of names over the years since Canadian Confederation . Initially known as the " Liberal-Conservative Party ", it dropped "Liberal" from its name in 1873, although many of its candidates continued to use this name. As a result of World War I and the Conscription Crisis of 1917 , the party joined with pro-conscription Liberals to become the "Unionist Party ", led by Robert Borden from 1917 to 1920, and then the " National Liberal and Conservative Party " until 1922. It then reverted to " Liberal-Conservative Party" until 1938, when it became simply the "National Conservative Party". It ran in the 1940 election as "National Government" even though it was in opposition. The party was almost always referred to as simply the "Conservative Party" or Tories
