Jorgenson was charge with knowingly receiving Deli very of 363 bushels of wheat in excess of heading Ley Farmer Nick Friesen s quota permit be tween nov. 15, and dec. He was acquitted on a Point of Law by Winnipeg magistrate j. J. Enns last feb. 24. But this decision was appealed by the government and reversed by the Manitoba Appeal court in june. The facts of the stated Case Are agreed and the Only Issue revolves around the interpretation of the Law which ultimately rests on the question which the supreme court specified it would hear is Sec. 174 of the Canada Grain act and that part of Sec. 45 of the wheat Board act that the general advantage of Canada is sufficient or whether it should also have added a list specifying each individual ele Vator covered by such a declaration. Or. Jorgenson s sole defence rests on the Contention that a specific list of buildings is essential As part of the Declara Tion the Point becomes important because jurisdiction Over local works such As elevators lies with the provinces under Sec. 92 of the ban act except in cases where the Federal Parlia ment makes a declaration that hey arc necessary to the Gen eral advantage or at least two provinces. Such declarations Are made in Sec. .-174 of the Canada Grain act and Sec. 45 of the wheat Board act. They form the foun Dation on which Ottawa takes jurisdiction Over Graniri handling rom the provinces and enforces Sec. 16, which forbids de liveries or acceptance of More wheat than permitted by a quota Book. Federal Grain legislation be tween 1925 and 1950 included a list but this was dropped from the current statutes in 1952. The magistrate s decision at the original trial found that the list was essential so he acquit Ted or. Jorgensen.
