Madam Speaker, the Minister of Transport answered the questions and sent a letter including a briefing note and also held a briefing session.
What concerns me in this affair is that my colleague simply does not want to hear the answer.
The member knows that the priority of the Minister of Transport is to provide safe and efficient service to pilots and their customers, Canadian passengers and freight carriers. To do so, we count on a considerable number of sophisticated aviation systems and on highly skilled personnel.
Once again, the air traffic control system has some basic elements. One of these is the control tower at individual airports, as is the case for Quebec City.
Another basic element is the regional control centre, like the one in Montreal.
The member is well aware that the radar in Bernières will be fully operational when the transfer takes place.
The technology exists to give pilots safe and efficient service.
He is trying to convince us that Quebec City was treated differently. That is certainly not the case.
The terminal control units in Halifax and North Bay, which had more traffic than the TCU in Quebec City, were also relocated, as were the terminal control units in Regina, Thunder Bay and Saskatoon.
I hope that the member and his colleagues will take note of the invitation from the Minister of Transport to visit the regional control centre in Montreal so that they can all understand that their constituents will continue to receive safe and efficient service, in French, from a very sophisticated centre equipped with the most modern technology.
