From the date of such notice such product shall be deemed an alcoholic beverage within the meaning of this Act.
1971, c. 19, s. 106; 1979, c. 71, s. 146; 1993, c. 39, s. 95.
103. To determine whether any medicine, including a medicated wine, contains alcohol in excess of the quantity required as a solvent or preservative, or whether it is so compounded as to render it unsuitable for use as a beverage, the board may have a sample of such medicine procured by it analysed by such person as it may select.
If it appears from the analysis that the product contains alcohol in excess of the quantity required as a solvent or preservative, or that it is not so compounded as to render it unsuitable for use as a beverage, the board may notify the manufacturer, or the agent in Québec of the manufacturer of such medicine, or the person who has acquired such product for resale, that it is not a medicated wine or a medicine within the meaning of paragraph b of section 102 but an alcoholic beverage to which this Act and the Act respecting liquor permits (chapter P-9.1) apply.
From the notification of such notice such product shall be deemed an alcoholic beverage within the meaning of this Act, and the manufacturer or the person who has acquired it for resale commits an offence against this Act if he sells such product after notification to him of such notice.
The decision of the board that the product concerned is not a medicated wine or medicine, but an alcoholic beverage, shall be published in the Gazette officielle du Québec.
The sending, by registered mail, of a copy of the decision of the board to the manufacturer or his agent in Québec or to the person who has acquired such product for resale, shall constitute the notice provided for in this section.
This section shall not apply to any medicinal or pharmaceutical preparation made up by a pharmacist in accordance with the terms of a physician’s prescription or made up by the physician himself for use in treating a patient under his care.
In this section and in section 99, medicated wine means any product containing an alcoholic beverage and medicine, provided that the quantity of alcoholic beverage therein is no more than is strictly necessary for purposes of solution or preservation and that the quantity of medicine is sufficient to render the product unsuitable for use as an alcoholic beverage.

132.1. For the purposes of this division, the word permit means, unless otherwise required by the context, a permit, issued under the Act respecting liquor permits (chapter P‐9.1), authorizing alcoholic beverages to be sold or served, a permit regarded as such a permit under section 2.0.1 or a small‐scale production permit or a brewer’s permit issued under the Act respecting the Société des alcools du Québec (chapter S‐13).
1996, c. 34, s. 53; 1997, c. 32, s. 17; 1999, c. 53, s. 5.
133. In any prosecution taken under this Act, it shall be incumbent upon the offender to prove that the delivery of the alcoholic beverage was effected entirely gratuitously and when he is found in possession of a quantity of alcoholic beverages that is large in relation to his condition and occupation, he shall be presumed to be keeping it or to have it in his possession for purposes of sale.
1971, c. 19, s. 137.
134. The owner or lessee of premises where an offence against this Act is committed or the holder of a permit issued for such premises who authorizes or allows such an offence to be committed therein is guilty of an offence and liable to the penalty prescribed for the offence he authorized or allowed.
In the absence of any evidence to the contrary, in any proceedings under the first paragraph, proof that an offence against this Act was committed by a person in the employ of the owner, lessee or permit holder is proof that that person has committed the offence with the authorization or consent of the owner, lessee or permit holder.
If the person who has committed an offence against this Act, the owner or lessee of the premises where the offence was committed or the holder of a permit issued for such premises is a partnership or a legal person, each partner or each director of the legal person who authorized or allowed the commission of the offence is deemed to be a party thereto.
1971, c. 19, s. 138; 1979, c. 71, s. 140; 1986, c. 95, s. 153; 1990, c. 4, s. 477; 1999, c. 40, s. 150.
134.1. A judge may issue a warrant, relying upon a statement made under oath by a peace officer, ordering that the owner or lessee of premises where alcoholic beverages are sold without the permit or authorization required under section 107 of this Act be arrested, if the judge is satisfied that the arrest is the only reasonable means to put an end to the commission of the offence.
The arrest must be carried out in accordance with articles 82, 86, 88, 89 and 92 to 94 of the Code of Penal Procedure (chapter C-25.1), adapted as required.
A warrant of arrest not executed within one year of issue is without effect.
1990, c. 4, s. 478; 1999, c. 40, s. 150.
135. (Repealed).
1971, c. 19, s. 139; 1990, c. 4, s. 479.
136. Where a person has been convicted of selling alcoholic beverages without a permit in any premises, the provisions of the Disorderly Houses Act (chapter M-2) shall apply, with the necessary modifications.
1971, c. 19, s. 140; 1990, c. 4, s. 480.
137. To prove that alcoholic beverages have been sold or consumed in contravention of this Act, it shall not be necessary to prove that there has been any actual handing over of money or actual consumption of beverages, if the court is convinced that a transaction having the characteristics of an alienation has actually taken place or that the beverages were about to be consumed.
1971, c. 19, s. 141.
138. When it is proved that, in any premises for which a permit is required, a person, other than the occupant of such premises, has actually consumed or was about to consume an alcoholic beverage, there shall be a simple presumption, against the holder of the permit or the occupant of the said premises, that such beverage was sold to the person who consumed or was about to consume it, or who took it away or was about to take it away.
1971, c. 19, s. 142; 1979, c. 71, s. 146; 1999, c. 40, s. 150.
138.1. Where the proof of an offence requires that the prosecuting party establish that the defendant is the holder of a permit, the prosecuting party may, instead of producing an attestation to that effect signed by the person having the authority to issue the permit, establish that fact by means of a declaration recorded in the statement of offence or in the offence report.
The defendant may, however, require that the prosecuting party prove that the defendant is the holder of a permit by the production of an attestation to that effect from the proper authority, provided the defendant gives notice to the prosecuting party not less than 10 days before the date set for the beginning of the trial. The prosecuting party may waive the notice.
1996, c. 17, s. 4.
139. In any prosecution under this Act against any person not the holder of a permit, such prosecution may be instituted either for the sale of alcoholic beverages without a permit or for the specific offence which he has committed and for which he would be liable to be prosecuted, even if he had been the holder of a permit.
1971, c. 19, s. 143.
140. Whenever any person is prosecuted and found guilty of any offence under this Act, the amount of the fine to which such person would otherwise be liable shall be doubled if, at the trial, it is proved that the alcoholic beverages sold, possessed or transported by such person were of bad quality, were unfit for consumption, had been made fraudulently or were adulterated.
1971, c. 19, s. 144; 1990, c. 4, s. 481.

1971, c. 19, s. 146; 1990, c. 4, s. 483.
143. In any prosecution for the sale of alcoholic beverages it shall not be necessary to prove the exact kind, or to mention the quantity of alcoholic beverages sold, unless the kind or quantity is essential to the nature of the offence.
1971, c. 19, s. 147.
144. To obtain a conviction, it shall not be necessary that the date mentioned in the statement of offence as the time of commission of the offence be exactly proved; it shall be sufficient to prove that the time allowed by law for the prosecution of such offence has not expired.
1971, c. 19, s. 148; 1990, c. 67, s. 15; 1992, c. 61, s. 337; 1999, c. 40, s. 150.

148. If the judge considers it necessary for the purposes of this Act, he may cause any alcoholic beverage to be analysed by the Corporation’s analyst. The costs of such analysis shall be included in the costs of the proceeding, and the amounts collected as such shall belong to the Corporation and be remitted to it.
1971, c. 19, s. 152; 1996, c. 17, s. 5.
149. In any prosecution under this Act, the certificate relating to the analysis of any beverage suspected of being alcoholic signed by the analyst of the Corporation shall be accepted as proof, in the absence of any evidence to the contrary, of the facts set forth therein and of the authority of the person who signed such certificate, without further evidence of his appointment or of his signature. The cost of such analysis shall also be included in the costs of the proceeding, and the amounts collected as such shall belong to the Corporation and be remitted to the Corporation.
Where beverages that have been seized in an establishment are in containers identified as containing alcoholic beverages, the beverages shall be presumed to be alcoholic beverages of the type indicated on the container, in the absence of any evidence to the contrary.
Where beverages that have been seized elsewhere than in an establishment are in sealed containers identified as containing alcoholic beverages, the beverages shall be presumed to be alcoholic beverages of the type indicated on the container, in the absence of any evidence to the contrary.
However, any defendant who contests that beverages seized are alcoholic beverages or are of a particular type must give prior notice to the prosecuting party of an application for analysis of the contents of a determined number of containers of such beverages not less than 10 days before the date set for the beginning of the trial, unless the prosecuting party waives the notice. Article 172 of the Code of Penal Procedure (chapter C-25.1) applies to the application.
1971, c. 19, s. 153; 1974, c. 14, s. 78; 1994, c. 26, s. 5; 1996, c. 17, s. 6.

CONFISCATION
172. On the thirtieth day following a conviction for an offence under a provision of this Act, the alcoholic beverages seized by reason of the offence and their containers are confiscated by operation of law, except if a judge, on application of the defendant or of a third party, decides otherwise.
Upon a conviction for an offence under a provision of this Act, the judge may, on application of the prosecuting party, order the confiscation
(1)  of any vehicle or other thing seized and having been used to transport such beverages;
(2)  of movable property and equipment seized and having been used in the illegal sale of alcoholic beverages;
(3)  of any amount seized that constitutes the proceeds from the illegal sale of alcoholic beverages.
However, the judge shall order, at all times, on the application of the prosecuting party, the confiscation of alcoholic beverages that are unfit for human consumption.
Prior notice of the application for confiscation shall be given by the prosecuting party to the person from whom the things were seized and to the defendant, except where they are in the presence of the judge.
The clerk or a person under his authority must advise the Corporation of any order for the confiscation of alcoholic beverages made under this Act.
1971, c. 19, s. 176; 1986, c. 95, s. 155; 1992, c. 61, s. 340; 1993, c. 71, s. 22; 1996, c. 17, s. 7.
172.1. If the person to whom the alcoholic beverages must be handed over is unknown or cannot be found, a judge may, upon application by the Corporation, allow the latter to dispose of the alcoholic beverages.
1993, c. 71, s. 23.
173. (Repealed).
1971, c. 19, s. 177; 1986, c. 95, s. 156.

1971, c. 19, s. 178; 1990, c. 67, s. 16; 1992, c. 61, s. 341.
175. If the name and address in Québec of the person at whose residence or in whose possession any alcoholic beverages, receptacles, vehicles or other things have been seized, are unknown to the Minister of Public Security or cannot be traced, everything seized shall be deemed confiscated at the expiry of 90 days from the date of seizure.
1971, c. 19, s. 179; 1986, c. 86, s. 41; 1988, c. 46, s. 24; 1996, c. 17, s. 8.
176. Alcoholic beverages and their receptacles which have been seized and confiscated shall be handed over to the Corporation.
1971, c. 19, s. 180.
177. When confiscation has been ordered by a judge, or has taken place under section 172 or as a result of the expiry of the period of 90 days provided for in section 175, the Corporation shall sell any beer seized, with the receptacles containing it, to a brewer or other person holding a permit for the sale of beer or of beer and wine. The Corporation shall take possession, as owner, of the other alcoholic beverages seized, with their receptacles, and the Minister of Public Security shall dispose by onerous title of the other things seized except the vehicles which shall be disposed of in accordance with the section 178.
When a judgment orders the seizure of alcoholic beverages against a person holding a permit or such person is declared bankrupt or makes an assignment of his property, or where a third person takes legal possession of his property, the alcoholic beverages confiscated or found in the possession of the holder of the permit at the time of his bankruptcy or assignment of property or at the time of the taking of possession must be surrendered to the Corporation. The latter, within one month after the date of such delivery, shall remit to whomsoever is entitled thereto
(a)  the proceeds of the sale by the Corporation of the beer and weak cider and the receptacles containing them, less 10% of such value;
(b)  the value of the other alcoholic beverages and of the receptacles containing them, less 10% of such value.
1971, c. 19, s. 181; 1986, c. 86, s. 41; 1988, c. 46, s. 24; 1992, c. 61, s. 342; 1993, c. 71, s. 24; 1996, c. 17, s. 9.
177.1. When alcoholic beverages are transported in contravention of this Act, and are seized in a vehicle used for such transportation, the person effecting the seizure may detain such vehicle if it is of such a nature that it can be confiscated by the court, and use it, without charge, to transport and place in the custody of the Corporation the alcoholic beverages seized and the receptacles containing them; furthermore, such person may seize such vehicle and place it in the custody of the Director General of the Sûreté du Québec, until the judge declares it confiscated.
1971, c. 19, s. 132; 1977, c. 5, s. 14; 1992, c. 61, s. 332.
178. When a confiscated vehicle has been placed in the possession of the Director General of the Sûreté du Québec, he shall dispose by onerous title of such vehicle or retain it for the use of a service of the Government, according to the instructions of the Minister of Public Security.
Whosoever, other than the offender, wishes to revendicate a thing seized may obtain delivery of it on presenting to a judge a motion stating his name, residence and occupation and setting out under oath the nature of his right to the thing seized.
The judge seized of the motion may order, on such conditions as he determines, the release of the thing under seizure.
The Government, if the good faith of the owner of a confiscated vehicle is established to its satisfaction, may order the release of the vehicle to such owner.
1971, c. 19, s. 182; 1977, c. 5, s. 14; 1986, c. 86, s. 41; 1988, c. 46, s. 24; 1992, c. 61, s. 343; 1996, c. 17, s. 10.
