Mr. FISHER.

It would be only in flagrant cases that a penalty of $500 would be imposed by the court. The range of the penalty is from $25 to $500 ; and I think we might leave the discretion with the magistrate.
On section 11,
Any inspector, informant or complainant who finds or has good reason to suspect seeds to be sold, or offered, exposed or had in possession for sale for the purpose of seeding in violation of the provisions of this Act, shall take a sample from the said seeds and forward it to such person as the Governor in Council appoints as an official seed analyst to examine and report upon any seed submitted for analysis under the provisions of this Act.
