Robert Bertrand Pontiac—Gatineau—Labelle, QC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-469, an act to recognize Canada's recreational hunting and fishing heritage and to establish the National Fish and Wildlife Heritage Commission.

Mr. Speaker, the purpose of my bill is to establish the right to hunt and fish in accordance with the law.

The bill also establishes a National Fish and Wildlife Commission that will be required to make recommendations to the Minister, notably in respect of the promotion of activities related to fish and wildlife.

This enactment also would require that a report on the activities of the commission be tabled annually in each of the Houses of Parliament.

I would like to thank my colleagues in the Liberal outdoor caucus who co-sponsored my bill: Mr. Jordan, Mr. Szabo, Mr. Steckle, Mrs. Ur, Mr. Adams, Mr. St. Denis, Mr. Savoy and Mr. Speller.
