Thomas Alexander Crerar (Minister of Mines and Resources)

Liberal

Mr. CRERAR:

I am advised there were a few established, but I cannot give the hon. member exact information in that regard. I should be glad to supply it when the supple-mentaries are under consideration. If the hon. member will raise the question at that time, I shall be pleased to answer it.

Harry James Barber

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BARBER:

I believe that during the last few years there has been some conflict in connection with the game regulations in British Columbia. I have received representations similar to those indicated by the hon. member for Vancouver South, and I endorse the statement that the administration of the act should be carried on by the federal government. I should like to know what the conflict was; I know there was some conflict in connection with the game regulations.

Mr. CRERAR:

The only question of conflict which arose was that some of the hunters in British Columbia were not quite satisfied with the periods of open and closed seasons which were established. It is only very rarely that all of the regulations in any province are accepted without at least some criticism. I must add, however, that the general good sense of the public supports the regulations as they are framed from year to year.

Mr. CRERAR:

Practically all of these

items will reappear in the supplementary estimates for additional votes. I would be very glad to accede to the suggestion of the hon. member, and I would do so particularly because I know of the interest of the right hon. the leader of the opposition in the Banff national park and in western parks generally.
