  2. This table does not include summary offence ticket informations such as liquor violations, municipal by-laws and fishing regulations.
  3. Overall volumes of charges in this table are approximately 30% higher than in tables 10 and 11 because this table includes dispositions of charges where there was no plea recorded in the information system.
