Mr. STEWART (Edmonton):
from the minister's remarks that those police officers were not to be magistrates, but I see section 2 reads:
Subsection one of section 5 of the said act is amended by adding at the end thereof the following words:
"All members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police shall, for the purpose of this act, be ex officio game officers."
I see that section 5, subsection one, at present reads as follows:
The minister may appoint game officers for carrying out this act and the regulations, and may authorize such game officers to exercise the powers of a justice of the peace or the powers of a police constable.
