Excerpt from First Annual Report of the Game and Fisheries of the Province of Ontario, 1907 Sir, - I have the honour to transmit herewith report of the work of the Department of Game and Fisheries for the year ending 31st December, 1907. This being the first report of the consolidated department of Game and Fisheries, it will be in order to refer to the cause or reason for merging what had previously been two departments. During the Session of the Legislature of 1907, an Act passed and entitled "An Act respecting Game, Fur-bearing Animals, and Fisheries of Ontario," which enacts as follows, viz.: "The administration of this Act, and of all matters relating to fish and game in the Province shall be under the control and direction of the Minister, and shall constitute a branch of the public service, to be known as the Game and Fisheries Branch." The Act further enacts: "The Board of Game Commissioners of the Province is hereby abolished." It is further provided that the administration of the Game and Fisheries Branch shall, under the Minister, be in charge of the chief officer thereof, who shall be known as the Superintendent of Game and Fisheries. I, having the honour to be appointed to the responsible position of Superintendent, have under somewhat difficult circumstances endeavored to perform the duties of the position to the best of my humble ability, and I trust in some measure satisfactory to you. The usual statistics, so far as procurable, representing quantities and values of the fisheries, plants, etc., with other matters pertaining to the fish and game of the Province, will be found in the usual order. The Department, with one Inspector and one Acting Inspector, and a full staff of seven Game and Fish Wardens in charge of districts, has been able to obtain a large amount of valuable and much needed information for use in the future administration of Game and Fisheries. The duties of these officers have been faithfully performed, with credit to themselves and to the Department.
