Constitutional law
inter-provincial trade

Description

In the Gold Seal case, the plaintiff was unable to export and import liquor products across provincial lines. The solicitor for the appellant argued that interprovincial trade barriers contradicted section 121 of the Constitution Act, 1867. In this case, the Court held that section 121 only applies to the flow of customs posts. All other forms of trade are not protected by section 121 and thus are subject to interprovincial trade barriers.
