CASE LAW - Quinn v Dubnyk

BC Courts Coat of ArmsThis case examines the application of the Motor Vehicle Act to highways on the Sechelt reserve lands. Quinn was stopped by Constable Dubnyk for operating an uninsured and unlicensed vehicle on a highway within the reserve. He was issued a violation ticket for operating the vehicle without insurance. He disputed the ticket, failed to attend on the trial date and was deemed to have not disputed and was convicted. He did not appeal the conviction.

The matter here is an action against the police, municipality of Sechelt, ICBC and the Attorney General for damages because the police had no authority to act on lands claimed by the Shishalh band.

Mr. Quinn was not successful in his action.
