Government of Nova Scotia
Orders In Council
April 1996

96-231  to  96-322


Note: In some of these Orders In Council, mention is made of a physical
measurement, usually a length or distance, or an area, which is given in
Imperial units, the measurement system in general use in Canada until the
1970s.  The Imperial system was abandoned some decades ago, and these
obsolete units of measure are now unfamiliar to a considerable proportion
of the population.  As time goes by, more and more people will be uncertain
of the correct interpretation or translation of Imperial into modern measures.
To assist the reader's understanding, where Imperial measures occur in the
text, immediately following I have inserted, in [square brackets] the modern
equivalent.  For example, 11.23 acres [4.545 hectares].

It should be understood that these insertions are not part of the original text.
Any errors in these conversions are my responsibility.

Comment: The historical and legal background of Order in Council 96-289
is an important chapter in the history of the Westray Public Inquiry.
If it had been put into effect five years earlier, the course of the
Westray Public Inquiry would have been quite different.

The Interprovincial Subpoena Act is designed to recognize and enforce
subpoenas from other jurisdictions with reciprocal legislation.  Under
the act, a subpoena can be obtained in Nova Scotia and enforced in
another province in Canada with similar legislation.  By the time
Nova Scotia got around to passing this legislation, and enabling it with
Orders in Council 96-289, 96-290, and 96-291, the Interprovincial
Subpoena Act had already been adopted in every other common law
province in Canada, and the Yukon (see list below).

It works this way — Once a subpoena has been obtained in Nova
Scotia, it is sent (along with witness fees and travelling expenses)
to a court in a reciprocating jurisdiction for enforcement.  These fees
and expenses are set by regulation.  The Act will provide assistance
in compelling the appearance of necessary witnesses in legal matters.

Uniform Interprovincial Subpoena Act
The Uniform Law Conference of Canada adopted its
Uniform Interprovincial Subpoena Act in 1974.  Since then,
eleven jurisdictions have enacted interprovincial subpoena
legislation.  Those jurisdictions are:
      1975   Manitoba
      1976   British Columbia
      1976   Northwest Territories
      1977   Saskatchewan
      1979   New Brunswick
