Canada Transportation Act
179 (1) Every person who contravenes a provision, requirement or condition designated under section 177 commits a violation and is liable to a penalty fixed pursuant to that section.
(1.1) [Repealed, 2014, c. 8, s. 11]
Marginal note:How contraventions may be proceeded with
(2) Where any act or omission can be proceeded with as a violation or as an offence, proceedings may be commenced in respect of that act or omission as a violation or as an offence, but proceeding with it as a violation precludes proceeding with it as an offence, and proceeding with it as an offence precludes proceeding with it as a violation.
Marginal note:Nature of violation
(3) For greater certainty, a violation is not an offence and, accordingly, section 126 of the Criminal Code does not apply.
