This section has evidently not been drafted with the ordinary care which the government usually exercises in drafting its measures. in chapter 11, section 3, which it is sought to amend, there could be no doubt at all, because the penalty was fixed at $1,000, and, therefore, within the jurisdiction of the Superior Court in the province of Quebec, and, I fancy, the Superior Courts of the other provinces. But, in the section which we are now discussing, you say, in so many words, that the prosecutor can sue for $1,000, or for any less sum down to $50. It is not essential to the putting of the law in motion that one should sue for the full penalty. If a person thinks he is aggrieved only to a certain extent, and he does not want to take upon himself the risk of paying heavy costs in a court of superior jurisdiction, he will simply take an action for a part of the penalty as the statute authorizes him, and it may be for $50. I think the Solicitor General is a little in error when he says that upon demurrer such an action taken in the circuit court in the province of Quebec would be dismissed. The informer is dominus litius. I cannot see any reason why it would not be competent for him to take recourse in a court which he thought fit to take his action before, and the jurisdiction of that court would be determined by the amount for which he would sue. The Solicitor General knows very well that in a great many instances the whole penalty is not sued for. Under divers other laws, only a-part of the penalty is sued for, because the parties who sue under these laws do not want to incur the risk of heavy costs in a court of superior jurisdiction. It seems to me it would be making the law much clearer if it were said in section 1 : That the court in which this action would be brought would be a court of superior jurisdiction, or, on the other hand, you could determine the jurisdiction of the court by the amount which is sued for.
