Mr. MICHAUD:

Mr. Speaker, in 1911 a convention was entered into between Great Britain, the United States of America, Japan and Russia in regard to pelagic sealing in the north Pacific ocean. The convention was ratified by the British parliament of the time, and later, in 1912, enabling legislation was passed by this parliament. But the enabling legislation did not provide for any sanctions for violations of the provisions of the act, and so from 1912 to the present day the sanctions provided by the Fisheries Act were applied. It has been found that this was leading to [DOT] misunderstanding by the natives of the Pacific coast, and accordingly it has been thought advisable to recast the legislation relating to pelagic sealing in the north Pacific ocean to provide sanctions for violations of the act.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
