I note that there is a
decrease of $2,135. I presume that is because there would be no need for supervision of the sea birds in Newfoundland this year. Seriously, I want to thank the minister and the Secretary of State for External Affairs for the co-operation they have given in the matter of a request for the relaxation of the Migratory Birds Convention Act. I feel that when they have made this investigation that they expect to make in the next three years they will find ample evidence that there is no necessity for imposing any restrictions in the future,
Supply-Resources and Development having regard to the reproduction of the birds. In view of the fact that we have been rather successful in the request to the minister in this connection, may I ask him to give consideration, if he is not already doing so, to the introduction of red deer to the province. I think they might well be implementing the living standard of the people and they would also be quite a great tourist attraction. I do not know whether the minister has had the proposal put to him already, but I think it is well worthy of his consideration.
