Saskatchewan, Canada


The following excerpt is from Waldron v. Rur. Mun. of Elfros No. 307, 1923 CanLII 162 (SK CA):

Appellant’s counsel cited a number of cases in support of his contention but I think those cases are clearly distinguishable from the case at bar, and are cases where the illegal act complained of was either the foundation of the contract sued on or there was some causal relation between it and the accident, or the main object of the Act in question was prohibitory, as was the case in Major v. C.P.R. 1922 CanLII 10 (SCC), [1922] 3 W.W.R. 512.
