THE ADVOCATE 139
VOL. 78 PART 1 JANUARY 2020
1. See Regina v R 1970 1 CCC 283 (BCSC), a case
from Prince Rupert. I personally encountered similar
cases in the Queen Charlotte Islands. I was sent there
by the Attorney General with instructions to ask the
lay magistrate/judge in Queen Charlotte City not to
make automatic “raise orders” on his own initiative.
But such orders continued to be made in Queen
Charlotte City. Court there used to be held in the
RCMP detachment, sometimes in the corporal’s
Another similar case from Ocean Falls was Regina
v W & W 1970 5 CCC 299 (BCSC). Fortunately the
remedy to correct the injustices there was found. The
“raise orders” were quashed in certiorari proceedings
taken before Aikins J on August 7, 1970.
An interesting contrast to all of these not-so-old
cases is the recent decision of the Court of Appeal in
T (E) (Re) (1989), 42 BCLR (2d) 40 (CA), leave to
appeal refused May 17, 1990).
