Mr. MacKinnon:

Mr. Chairman, as the Game Export Act was originally drafted, it was contemplated that dominion game officers would be specially appointed under this act. Authority for such appointments was not, however, retained in the bill as enacted and there are no officers so appointed. Our policy is to procure the enforcement of the act by game officers appointed under the game laws of the provinces, by provincial police and by members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and customs officers, all of whom are given adequate authority ex officio by section 6.

In these circumstances the reference in section 2 (c) to persons "appointed to enforce the provisions of this act" should be deleted; and a special form of oath of office is unnecessary. Further, the wording of section 5 (2) has caused some confusion as to the territorial extent of the powers of officers who have authority under section 6 to enforce this act. The 1948 conference of provincial and dominion wildlife officials adopted a

Game Export Act

resolution requesting the present amendment in order that this confusion might be removed.
