(Constitutionality / tax / regulatory charge)
The Minister of Canadian Heritage required that hotels, restaurants, and bars in Jasper National Park pay fees in order to sell alcohol in the park. The fees were challenged on the basis that they were a tax which only Parliament may impose. The Court held that the fees were valid regulatory charges intra vires the Minister’s delegated power because they were connected to a regulatory scheme.
