Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MONK.

It does not refer to the province of Quebec alone, but the main disposition declares that laws of that nature will apply to the whole of Canada.
But no law, power of privilege granted by a Federal law, or a charter emanating under some Federal law will have for effect to remove any person or company from the responsibility which it would incur under the civil law or the common law of each province in the exercise of such right, power or privilege.
It merely declares that in cases such as the one I have just described, the civil law of each province will apply, conformably to the dispositions of the Constitutional Act of 1SG7.

Topic:   INTERPRETATION ACT AMENDMENT.
