The following excerpt is from Century Services Inc. v. Canada (Attorney General),  3 SCR 379, 2010 SCC 60 (CanLII):
The exception to this presumptive displacement of pre-existing inconsistent legislation, is the generalia specialibus non derogant principle that “[a] more recent, general provision will not be construed as affecting an earlier, special provision” (Côté, at p. 359). Like a Russian Doll, there is also an exception within this exception, namely, that an earlier, specific provision may in fact be “overruled” by a subsequent general statute if the legislature indicates, through its language, an intention that the general provision prevails (Doré v. Verdun (City), 1997 CanLII 315 (SCC),  2 S.C.R. 862).
