Mr. A. W. NEILL (Comox-Alberni):
Mr. Speaker, I wish to present a petition, in fact three petitions, but as the preamble and the prayer is the same in each case I shall treat them as a unit. The first one is signed by 477 business men of British Columbia, the next one by 248 sport fishermen, and the next by 1,837 fishermen of the province of British Columbia. The preamble is leading up to the prayer, which I will read:
Wherefore your petitioners humbly pray that your honourable house may be pleased to pass the necessary legislation prohibiting the taking of salmon by means of fish traps from the waters of the British Columbia coast.
