moved for leave to introduce Bill C-391, an act to recognize and protect Canada's hunting and fishing heritage.
Mr. Speaker, this bill should have been introduced in the House probably 20 years ago.
On the issue of recognition, hunting and fishing has been a long tradition of this country for all Canadians, for those who came here before the Europeans. Under the government we will no longer have hunting or fishing if we keep going down the path we are going right now.
It is a great honour and I look forward to passing this bill in the House.
