Mr. DORION (Translation):

Mr. Chairman, may' I add a few words to what has been stated by the hon. member for Charlevoix Saguenay (Mr. Casgrain). It cannot be gainsaid that the situation of fishermen on the Gaspe coast and of those on the north shore of the St. Lawrence river is absolutely intolerable. However, we must take into consideration the fact that in 1922 the Liberal government, passed an order in council transferring all its fishery rights to the government of Quebec. Since that date, the fisheries come directly under the administration of the provincial government. It is now requested that the Dominion government collaborate with the Quebec government, and it is contended that if there is no co-operation or if anything goes wrong, the Dominion government will be held responsible; but when all is well the Quebec government gets the credit for it. There is but one remedy and that is to cancel the 1922 order in council.

Mr. DORION (Translation):

What should be done is the return of the control of all the Quebec fisheries to the Dominion government and to put matters as they stood before this order in council was passed. Were we to probe this question, or hold an inquiry in order to find out why the control of the Quebec fisheries was taken away from the Dominion government, it would be shown that it was simply to favour a few persons who wanted to take possession of the salmon fishing in the rivers on the north shore and the Gaspe coast.

Mr. DORION (Translation):

The list would be too long; the hon. member for Laprairie Napierville (Mr. Dupuis) must be aware of this fact because he has had the occasion of visiting Gaspe and the north shore. These persons intended not only to take possession of the salmon rivers of the Gaspe peninsula and the north shore of the St. Lawrence, but to also control the estuaries of these rivers and that was the reason the dominion government was requested, in 1922, to pass an order in council. I think that the only real remedy to the situation, under the circumstances, as I had the occasion of suggesting to the Minister of Marine (Mr. Duranleau) would be to cancel the order in council of 1922, so that the control of the fisheries of Quebec would be returned to the dominion government as it was previously and as it is the case in all other provinces.
