Following the Mayor’s Council on January 25, the Economic Development Commission on the Quality of Hunting and Fisheries was established in Auto Lorented. With the support of Unis pour la faune, this committee has given itself a mission to revitalize the lake and promote the reproduction of the game.

At the Antoine Label MRC, the economic benefits associated with hunting and fishing are immeasurable. “Last year, Quebec’s economic interests were $ 1.3 billion,” said Normand St-Amour, Deputy Prime Minister of MRC d’Antoine-Labelle and Mayor of Chute-Saint-Philippe, a member of the new committee. Laurenshan has over $ 240 million in hunting and fishing economic benefits, and Antoine-Labelle’s MRC has over $ 120 million. “

Normand St-Amour adds that the quality of hunting in the region has declined significantly in recent years. What the Commission wants to put pressure on the Quebec Government on the regulation of upper Laurenshan hunting and fishing is to improve the quality of hunting and fishing. The Commission’s priority is to ban the hunting of roe deer with less than 3 points on either side of the antlers. This allows for significant breeding.

According to Normand St-Amour, “The application of deer management standards in Quebec took place decades ago. Controlling deer populations in southern Quebec to limit the devastation of agricultural production. This law is in force throughout Quebec. At Hautes-Laurentides, the reality is quite different from the plains of St. Lawrence. It demands higher quality hunting and diversity. “

As for fishing, we note that the enforcement of regulations (such as walleye pollock being too big or too small) has generally improved the quality of fishing in the region. Normand St-Amour said: I want to see what other kinds of fish can do. “
