R v. Ardley

In Fish Cases, Miscellaneous, Offences on (Updated )

This case involved a charge under section 61(1)(a) of the Fisheries Act for failing to provide answers to information requests from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. The accused was convicted at the Provincial Court level and acquitted on a summary conviction appeal. Upon further appeal, the conviction was restored on the grounds that it was intended by Parliament that this section of the act should apply to the sports fishing industry.
