ANNO DOMINI, 1877
This volume is a reprint of such Statutes of the Parliament of Canada, passed from 1875 to 1877, both-inclusive, as have reference exclusively (or almost entirely so) to Criminal Law or Procedure.
Being reprints, no alterations have been made where sections have been amended or repealed. Any amending or repealing Acts will be found in the volume..
It must be noted also that very many of the General Statutes of Canada, passed during the same period, have penal clauses inserted in them. Such clauses are not to be found in this volume. For access to them, reference must be had to the volume of Statutes of each year, in which such Statutes appear at length
