Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

Section 82 provides for the procedure. It provides for the recovery of penalties under the Summary Convictions Act. It does not provide for

Industrial Disputes Act
imprisonment but for execution or levy, unless it is otherwise provided for. I will read section 82:
All penalties imposed by this act or by any regulation made under this authority, shall be recoverable with costs-
(a) before any civil court of competent jurisdiction, by any person who shall sue for the same, and in such case the amount of the judgment, if not forthwith paid, may be levied by execution and Sale of the goods and chattels of the offender; or
(ib) if the penalty does not exceed fifty dollars by summary conviction before any justice of the peace for the district, county or place in which the offence is committed, and, if the penalty exceeds fifty dollars, by summary conviction before any two such justices.
That is any official having the authority of two justices of the peace, as my hon. friend knows. The section proceeds:
Subject to the provisions of this act, the provisions of the criminal code relating to summary convictions shall apply to all prosecutions for penalties.
