Reference Re: Regulations in Relation to Chemicals

Reference re Regulations in Relation to Chemicals, [1943] 1 DLR 248
This is a reference case regarding several orders in council which regulated certain chemicals within Canada; of principle concern within these regulations was the ability of the executive to delegate authority to subordinate agencies. The SCC concluded that the executive could delegate as needed, and found the orders in council to otherwise be valid with a small exception regarding payment for expropriated materials that was found to conflict with the War Measures Act.

Readers of these historical materials will encounter derogatory references to Japanese Canadians and euphemisms used to obscure the intent and impacts of the internment and dispossession. While these are important realities of the history, the Landscapes of Injustice Research Collective urges users to carefully consider their own terminological choices in writing and speaking about this topic today as we confront past injustice.
