Ontario (Attorney General) v Canada Temperance Federation, [1946] AC 193, 2 DLR 1 (JCPC)

Ratio:

Foundation for the national concern branch of POGG: Need for national law that "[c]annot realistically be satisfied by cooperation of provinces because failure of one province would carry with it adverse consequences for residents in other provinces."

Analysis:

Judicial Committee of the Privy Council (JCPC) returned to the issue addressed in Russell v The Queen -- which examined whether the federal Canada Temperance Act was valid.

Comments:

Foundation for the "national dimensions" or "national concern" test.
