Can. 132 902.07

ENTERED ACCORDING TO ACT OF PARLIAMENT OF CANADA, IN THE
YEAR 1907, BY WILSON & LAFLEUR, PUBLISHERS, OF
MONTREAL, IN THE OFFICE OF THE MINISTER of Agriculture
AT OTTAWA.

PREFACE

TO THE SUPPLEMENT.

The Criminal Code and the Canada Evidence Act,-as originally passed, and from time to time amended,-have, by the Revised Statutes of Canada, 1906, been repealed, and, (with alterations in the arrangement and in the numbering of the sections of each),— have (along with other Federal enactments included in the Author's second edition of his annotated work on the Criminal Law of Canada, some of which enactments are mentioned below-), been re-enacted as separate chapters of the new Revised Statutes,the Adulteration Act being chapter 133, the Canada Evidence Act being chapter 145, the Criminal Code being chapter 146, the Identification of Criminals Act being chapter 149, the Ticket of Leave Act being chapter 150, the Fugitive Offenders' Act being chapter 154 and the Extradition Act being chapter 155.

This makes it necessary to issue either a new edition of the Author's work, or a supplement thereto; and, as only a little over five years have elapsed since the publication of the Author's second edition, and, in view of the greater time, labor and expense involved in the preparation and publication of a new edition, a Supplement, such as the one now issued, will more expeditiously and economically place, at the disposal of the legal fraternity, the Criminal Law

of Canada as it now exists.

574805

Being mainly in the shape of a Concordance,-between the numbering of the sections of the Criminal Code and other Acts (as originally enacted and amended to the end of 1901, when the Author's second edition was published), and the numbering of the sections of the corresponding chapters of the New Revised Statutes,-the present Supplement has three columns, the first column giving the old numbering, and the second column giving the new numbering; while the third column shews what has been omitted from, what has been added to and what changes have been made in the law as contained in the Author's second edition.

PREFACE TO THE SUPPLEMENT

-

Where there is no omission, no addition, no change and no amendment, any particular section of the old law being the same as a section (corresponding therewith) of the new law, a statement to that effect is made; but, in case of a change in or of an addition to or of an amendment of the law, not only is there a statement to that effect, but the section of the law, as it now stands, is invariably set out in full; and all important judicial decisions, bearing upon the law of any section, and rendered since the publication of the Author's second edition, (as well as some decisions rendered prior to but not cited and annotated in the second edition), are cited and annotated under the sections of the law to which they apply.

In the Appendix, the same system is adopted of concordance between the numbering of the sections of the old Acts, (contained in the Appendices to the Author's second edition), and the numbering of the sections of the corresponding Acts of the new Revised Statutes; and the latest decisions upon the law contained therein are likewise cited and annotated.

Moreover, the Appendix contains,-(besides the Alien Labor Act, the Fugitive Offenders' Act, the Extradition Act and a part of the Yukon Act), the Money Lenders Act, the Adulteration Act, a recent Amendment of the Adulteration Act, the Lord's Day Act, a reference to the Quebec Sunday Observance Act (recently passed), a List of Extradition Treaties between Great Britain and Foreign Countries, and an Extract from the Governor General's Proclamation, (of the 10th of June 1907), bringing into force a portion of Part III of the Criminal Code, relating to the Preservation of Peace in the vicinity of Public Works.

Montreal, 30th June 1907.
