Thomas Alexander Crerar (Minister of Mines and Resources)

Liberal

Mr. CRERAR:

In most provinces the regulations agreed upon by the federal and provincial authorities are enforced by the province. There are certain cases where enforcement is carried out by the mounted police. We aim to get cooperation with the provinces, and have been very successful in that regard. The regulations framed from year to year govern particularly the hunting of wild fowl. We have not run into any difficulty in connection with the administration of the act. I think almost everyone from one end of Canada to the other is seized with the importance of preserving the migratory birds. I might point out further that opinion in the United States has crystallized into a more strict enforcement of regulations than obtained several years ago. I believe they are now doing their full share.
