Mr. EARLE.

In regard to the law, of course I am notable to speak authoritatively. But last year when an amendment to the Fisheries Act was introduced, the power to grant trap fishing licenses was included. Then, in obedience to some representations, or for some other reason, that provision was withdrawn ; and the minister, when questioned by myself, said there was power already in existence giving him authority to issue licenses to fish by traps. Now I maintain that if there is power to grant licenses to fish by traps, why not provide that any one complying with the fishery regulations shall be able to obtain a license to fish in that manner ?

Mr. EARLE.

I would like to enter my protest as strongly as I can against the course the minister has pursued in regard to trap licenses. If the course he has pursued and is pursuing is continued, it will be most unjust to the canners and fishermen of British Columbia. The commission reported upon the desirability of granting trap licenses.

Mr. EARLE.

I read the report, and I think it will bear out what I say that although you did not report in favour of granting trail-licenses that year the inference was that at a future date trap-licenses should be granted.

Mr. EARLE.

But is the law such that any one applying for a trap-net license would be able to obtain it ? Is it dependent on the will of the minister ?
