To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia: 

We, the undersigned, respectfully request you to amend the Law for the Protection of Game, so as to provide that the shooting season, for all kinds of animals and birds mentioned in the Game Protection Acts now in force, and including, deer, wild duck, robin and snipe, commence on the same date, as we consider this the only means to adopt in order to provide for the Protection of Game in this section of the Province.
