That is the point I was endeavouring to make. Assume they pass an ordinance of the type or character of the Milk Act which was declared to be ultra vires; we would have no way of dealing with that under the constitution except under peace, order and good government, because it it not a statute; it is an ordinance which is not subject to disallowance like a statute is subject to disallowance within a certain period of time, after having been certified by the Secretary of State and gone forward to the Minister of Justice who makes a report upon it, and the statute is then disallowed or left to its operation, as we say. But having no power to disallow an ordinance, if there is not a clear understanding by the province of the limitations imposed by the constitution upon the exercise of the power, the executive might enact ordinances that not only were not within section 92 of the British North America Act, but which contravened section 91. It would not be the first time that has been done by legislatures. Almost every province at one time or another has passed a statute which the courts of the country have declared to be invalid. I am putting a case in which to await the decision of the courts might bring about a very grave disaster. It is a lawyer's point and one which unfortunately I cannot perhaps make very clear to my colleagues who are not of the legal profession. I am only pointing out a contingency which might arise, and which we are endeavouring to meet before it happens.
