R v. Gateway

In Fish Cases, Miscellaneous, Offences on (Updated )

This case involved a motion to quash 10 of 13 counts of an information. The motion was successful in quashing a number of counts on the basis that they did not state the location of the offence so as to give the court territorial jurisdiction. The motion was unsuccessful in quashing counts of the information which alleged an offence continued over a period of several days. It contains a useful discussion of the law with respect to the quashing of informations.
