CANADIAN NATIONAL SILVER FOX BREEDERS ASSOCIATION

CON

Mr. BLACK (Yukon):

Conservative (1867-1942)

1. Has the Minister of Agriculture approved of an amendment to the constitution of an association called Canadian National Silver Fox Breeders Association closing that association's register on January 15, 1926, against all male silver foxes including thoroughbreds born in Canada except those the sire and dam of which are registered in the Canadian national record for foxes?

2. Has the attention of the Minister of Agriculture been called to the fact that prior to the closing of such register, application to register thoroughbred silver foxes in Yukon had been received by Canadian national live stock records and such application was shut out by the closing of the register?

Mr. MOTHERWELL: (Minister of Agriculture)

1. Yes, the stud book of the Canadian National Silver Fox Breeders Association closed on Januajry 15, 1926, as far as foundation stock is concerned. After that date all foxes registered have to be by registered parents except in the case of a wild silver female accepted under inspection for grading up purposes.

2. Yes. This matter was brought to the attention of the department by Mr. George Black, M.P. (Yukon). A tentative arrangement was made for an officer to be sent to the Yukon to look over these foxes and register those, if any, that were up to a certain standard and whose breeding could be traced.

Questions

An effort was made to secure the services of an inspector to go there, but the job was refused by certain inspectors, and although one inspector finally agreed to go, he asked such a, high rate of pay that the department considered it would not be justified in sending him at that time. Since then, as fox inspection has passed out of the hands of the department and been taken over by the Canadian National Silver Fox Breeders Association, no further action has been taken in the matter.
