Common Law

who acts for any person

Civil Law

who acts for any person

Title of the Legislative Text

Canada Grain Act, R.S., c. G-10

Provision

  81. (3) No licensed grain dealer who acts for any person on a commission basis in relation to the purchase or sale of western grain by a grade name shall, except with the consent of that person, buy, sell or have any interest directly or indirectly beyond the dealer's agreed commission in the purchase or sale of the grain.

Problem

The term "mandant" in the French version has a narrower meaning than "who acts for any person" in the English version.

Solution

In the French version, the terms "son mandant" are replaced by "la personne pour laquelle il agit".

Harmonized Provision

(Amendment to the French version only)

  (3) Le négociant en grains titulaire d'une licence qui perçoit une commission à l'achat ou à la vente de grain de l'Ouest désigné sous une appellation de grade ne peut, sans le consentement de la personne pour laquelle il agit, acheter, vendre ou détenir directement ou indirectement, dans ces opérations, d'autres droits ou intérêts que la commission convenue.
