Ross v Registrar of Motor Vehicles et al., [1975] 1 SCR 5


Ross was convicted of driving while impaired under the Criminal Code. Judge allowed to restrict license and told the Registrar that his license was not suspended. Registrar suspended the license anyway in accordance with the provincial Act. Ross said the section from the provincial Act was invalid because it conflicted with the Criminal Code.


There will be no conflict when you can abide by one law of one jurisdiction without violating the other law of the other jurisdiction.


There is no conflict here: You can abide by the provincial law without violating the fed law:
**By following the stricter legislation, he is respecting both pieces of legislation.
**Laws are not making R do conflicting things.


Both acts are valid – provincal law can stand.


This is very narrow view of conflict.
