Health committee  I do not want to refer specifically to the Customs Act, but I can say that they are two different things. Under Section 34, a mandatory requirement falls on the conveyance operator. Section 15 of Bill C-12 passed in the 38th Parliament says that each traveller must answer questio

Health committee  You're referring to subsection 15(2) of the act?

April 18th, 2007Committee meeting

John Cuningham

Health committee  Okay. That's what I was referring to earlier, where you have the obligation on the traveller--every traveller--which includes the conveyance operator, to in fact self-report. If I can quote, Any traveller who has reasonable grounds to suspect that they have or might have a comm

Health committee  Okay. So here again we have that the conveyance operators, as soon as they have reasonable grounds to suspect--so it's not that high of a threshold--that these factors are in play, have the obligation to report before they arrive at the destination.

Health committee  No. If I'm looking at the proposed bill, it's caught by proposed subsection 34(1), which says “This section applies to the operator of any of the following conveyances...”. When they refer to a conveyance in subsection 34(2), it's the conveyances that are circumscribed.

Health committee  I can't answer the question directly, but what I can say, as Madam Brown pointed out, is that originally the new Quarantine Act referred to a broader set of conveyances. It's certainly conceptually easier to talk about marine, air, and ground. There are three large types of conve

John Cuningham

Health committee  I think the decrease is compared to what the new Quarantine Act and the current wording of section 34 would have done. But compared with the current actual regulations that apply and that applied before the new Quarantine Act, there's no decrease. The previous regulations continu

John Cuningham

Health committee  I can add one thing that hasn't been mentioned to date, and that is just with respect to dealing with the other prescribed conveyances. As was noted, regulations could be made to deal with land conveyances if the risk profile changed. I would just note that under section 60 of th

John Cuningham

Health committee  Obviously, with respect, you're Parliament, and the law was passed as it was passed. As Mr. Brodie said, it covered marine and ground, and that was passed in 2005 and was only brought into force in 2006. In the intervening period, there has been a rethinking.
