Ambrose Upton Gledstanes Bury

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BURY:

The purpose of the bill is to make two amendments in section 750 of the criminal code, in Part XV, in connection with summary convictions.

The first amendment is to extend to those who have been convicted and sentenced to a fine without imprisonment on default the same rights as are now under the code extended to those who have been convicted and sentenced to imprisonment without a fine, and to those who have been convicted and sentenced to a fine and, in default of payment, imprisonment, both of which classes on appeal can enter into a recognizance and remain at liberty until their appeal comes on. In the case of a man convicted and sentenced to a fine without imprisonment on default there is no such provision, and he must pay his fine and costs in full before he can appeal. The purpose of the amendment is to extend to him the same privilege as is granted already to the two classes first mentioned.

The other amendment is intended to preserve to a convicted person the right of appeal notwithstanding his having failed to indicate an intention of appealing after his conviction. As the law now stands if a man convicted and sentenced pays his fine, and then later within the time limit specified by the code, files his notice of appeal, he may be and sometimes is met at the court of appeal with the objection that he has waived his right of appeal by paying his fine without then indi-

eating an intention to appeal. The purpose of the amendment is to preserve the right of appeal during the time provided under the code for the filing of the notice.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

With respect to this question the hon. Minister of Marine indicated the other day that an answer would be given later. It would be difficult to answer the question exactly by a written reply for the reason that representatives from several bodies in Montreal saw the minister and other representatives of other bodies saw me, and the answer therefore would be that representatives of various bodies of Montreal saw various members of the government with respect to the improvement of the channel below the port of Montreal. One body, for instance, which sent representatives was the chamber of commerce, and another, the board of trade. The answer given was that departmental engineers would collect all the available information and make a report in due course as to what, if any, action could be taken to provide a deeper channel than that now existing between the port of Montreal and the sea.
