Mr. EARLE.

I must have misunderstood the minister because I understood him to say that if any licenses be granted they are only granted by the minister, that there are no regulations enabling anybody to put up traps and be ceftain they will be able to obtain a license.

Mr. EARLE.

Under what law or rule are they permitted to fish with traps in British Columbia to-day?

Mr. EARLE.

I would like to know in what position those parties are who have gone to the expense of erecting traps. They tell me that they have spent something over $20,000 and their license enables them to fish for one year only. So. they will be at the will of the minister, whether they shall be able to use trap-nets in future or not. If that is the case, it is a serious matter1.

Mr. EARLE.

As I understand the minister, some time ago when speaking to me on the subject, it was open, to any one who would comply with the regulations to obtain a license for trap fishing. I would like to hear from the hon. member for Vancouver (Mr. Ralph Smith) and the hon. junior member for Victoria (Mr. Riley) who were on the commission that investigated this question, and, as I understood, recommended that authority should be given for trap fishing such as was intended by this Order in Council. Now, it comes down to this, that we are in the position that we have been in for the last few years. I would like to understand from the members of the committee who are here what their views are with regard to the recommendation they made.

Mr. EARLE.

Are any other traps to be allowed except those for which permission was given some years ago ?
