For more than a year, I have submitted to government officials a suggestion dealing with the Yukon Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Heritage Act.

Even though all government parties have agreed with the suggestion of such a heritage act, no party or individual has been willing to put this forward into legislation.

As explained, it has nothing whaesoever to do with, nor is it connected or referenced to, any act or agreement with First Nations.

I should point out that such an act has been passed in a number of the provinces.

I would also point out the word “right.”

The word “right” is with respect to all acts, regulations, both federal and territorial and provincial legislation.

Should anyone wish an additional copy of this proposed act, I will immediately forward a copy of such.

You may be aware that a bill has had two readings federally to make the third Saturday of September Fishing and Hunting Heritage Day.

I would congratulate the presenter for recognizing the importance and tradition of fishing, and hunting in Canada.

What I would suggest is that the elected representatives of the Yukon proceed with the suggested Yukon Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Heritage Act, respecting the founding traditions of the people of the Yukon being hunting fishing and trapping.

The act not only recognizes the thousands of people who honourably pursue these activities, but also guarantees the future generations of the Yukon the same rights and tradition that we have this day.

I would ask if any party leader is willing to go forward with presenting to the legislative body the suggested Yukon Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Heritage Act.

I would be willing to co-operate in giving any background information on such.
