Part 10.1
Special Provisions Regarding

Definition
124.1   In this Part, "disposition authorizing the grazing of bison" means
	(a)	a disposition referred to in section 124.2, and
	(b)	a disposition that is listed in Schedule 4.
Authorization to graze bison
124.2   The Minister may, subject to any terms and conditions the Minister considers appropriate, authorize the grazing of bison on all or part of land that is subject to a disposition under the Act.
Restriction
124.3(1)  No disposition may authorize the grazing of bison in respect of public land that is located in the area described in Schedule 3.
(2)  Subsection (1) does not apply in respect of a disposition authorizing the grazing of bison, as amended, including an amendment as to the description of the land under the disposition, or renewed from time to time, that is listed in Schedule 4.
Cancellation of authorization
124.4(1)  The Minister may cancel an authorization to graze bison under a disposition authorizing the grazing of bison at any time for any reason the Minister considers appropriate.
(2)  The holder of a disposition authorizing the grazing of bison has no right to compensation for anything done by the Minister under subsection (1).
Prohibition
124.5(1)  No person may graze bison on public land except in accordance with a disposition authorizing the grazing of bison.
(2)  The holder of a disposition authorizing the grazing of bison shall not graze bison of which the holder is not the owner, or allow such livestock to graze, on the land that is subject to the disposition without the written consent of the Minister.
(3)  Notwithstanding subsection (1), the members of a grazing association that holds a grazing disposition that also authorizes the grazing of bison may, without the written consent of the Minister, graze bison owned by them on the land that is subject to the grazing disposition.
Testing and marking
124.6(1)  The Minister may, by notice in writing, require the holder of a disposition authorizing the grazing of bison to ensure that
	(a)	tests for disease are conducted on the bison, and
	(b)	a system of marking the bison is implemented,

(2)  A notice under subsection (1) must specify the details of the nature and frequency of the testing or of the marking, as the case may be.
(3)  A person to whom a notice under subsection (1) is given under this section shall comply with it in accordance with its terms.
Limitations on assignment
124.7   Where the holder of a disposition authorizing the grazing of bison assigns the disposition, the assignment does not operate to convey the right to graze bison unless the Minister consents to such a use.
Order re disease
124.8(1)  Where
	(a)	a holder of a disposition authorizing the grazing of bison contravenes section 124.6(3), or
	(b)	the Minister considers that bison that are on the land that is subject to the disposition are, may be or may become infected with a disease,
the Minister may issue an order to the holder requiring the holder to do or refrain from doing anything specified in the order to remedy the contravention or address the disease or identification issue, as the case may be.
(2)  A holder who receives an order under subsection (1) shall comply with it in accordance with its terms.
(3)  Where a holder fails to comply with an order under subsection (1) to the Minister's satisfaction, the Minister may
	(a)	carry out the order or cause it to be carried out, and
	(b)	order the forfeiture of all or part of the security deposit, if any, paid by the holder, in an amount equal to the reasonable costs of carrying out the order, as determined by the Minister.
(4)  If there is no security deposit or if the amount of the security deposit is insufficient to cover the costs, the Minister may recover the costs or the excess amount, as the case may be, from the holder as a debt owing to the Crown.
Offences

	(a)	section 124.5(1) or (2), 124.6(3) or 124.8(2), or
