May 2, 1916 (12th Parliament, 6th Session)


Charles Joseph Doherty (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)


There is already in the Canada Temperance Act as it stands a prohibition against sending liquor into the Canada Temperance Act district. Under section 117 of the Canada Temperance Act, as amended in 1908, it is prohibited for any person:
To send, ship, bring or carry, or cause to be sent, shipped, brought or carried, to or into any such county or city, any intoxicating liquor.
That is to- say, into a county or city where the Canada Temperance Act is in force. So that, so far as protecting the Canada Temperance Act districts from the importation of liquor is concerned, the Canada Temperance Act already protects them. The purpose of these amendments is to protect the remaining portions of a province, which are not under the Canada Temperance Act, from liquor sold within a Canada Temperance Act district 'being sent into those portions of the province-, to'be used in violation of the provincial law there in force.
