Ernest Lapointe (Minister of Marine and Fisheries)

Liberal

Mr. LAPOINTE:

The object of this
bill is to afford proper protection of our salmon and lobster fisheries. Both these fisheries are conducted beyond, as well as within, territorial waters. Heretofore our regulations, which have applied to both, have never been challenged. But we have been informed that they may be challenged in some part of the country, especially in British Columbia; and the Department of Justice is of opinion that the regulations should be implemented by legislation.

Topic:   FISHERIES ACT, 1914, AMENDMENT
