Transport committee  Thank you. There is a transition period during which the Government of Canada, for an initial period, will transfer the funding for CATSA to the not-for-profit private sector entity that is being set up to run it. After the transfer period, that entity would directly collect t

Michael Keenan

Transport committee  There are two points I could elaborate on here. One is that the purpose of the BI, the budget implementation legislation, is to authorize a negotiated transfer. Beyond that, it sets some basic terms, but everything is subject to negotiations with the airlines and the airports.

Transport committee  I would say that the assets that have been built up at CATSA are quite significant, and they've been built up over a long period of time, over many years. If you go back in the history of CATSA, sometimes it ran a big deficit and the government topped it up, and sometimes it ran

Transport committee  As Minister Garneau said, there's a lot of work going on to work through this very technical issue. Minister Garneau and his provincial colleagues on the council of ministers of transport commissioned a task force report on trucking harmonization. It came in early in 2019. An int

Transport committee  Madam Chair, for these organizations Transport Canada develops a contribution agreement whereby the organization commits to certain activities that advance the purpose of the program—in this case, community capacity, marine safety, coastal ecosystem restoration—and the organizati

Michael Keenan

Transport committee  I cannot predict exactly how many organizations will end up applying and be recipients going forward, but based on the trends and to date we have seen heavy subscription to this program. The reason we have seen it is that there has been a significant effort in developing partner

February 28th, 2019Committee meeting

Michael Keenan

Transport committee  There are several. The first is that, in the construction of both the terms and conditions and the results...the work and results, that is the purpose of the contribution agreement, it's very clear what it's for and what it's not for and that the recipient would need to demonstr

February 28th, 2019Committee meeting

Michael Keenan

Transport committee  Yes. I can turn to my colleagues, but that's it. It varies. The exact details of how we execute this process will vary by the recipient and by the amount, but essentially, that is at its core the process. For any recipient, the question is the activities have been agreed to and

Michael Keenan

Transport committee  There are two things. I apologize, but I don't have detailed knowledge of that program. In our work with the large airports, we ensure that they actually deliver on the commitments they've made to us, under either a program or the lease agreements, because Transport Canada is

Transport committee  The activities in the community participation program, which is under the oceans protection plan, that would be supported and funded and that the government would contribute to would be ones directly related to marine safety and coastal ecosystem restoration. If there were a poli

February 28th, 2019Committee meeting

Michael Keenan

Transport committee  Yes, we do. I will turn it over to my assistant deputy minister of programs, Anuradha Marisetti, who is actually in charge of the program. Would you give an update with a couple of details on those?

Transport committee  Madam Chair, I think we would adjust our schedule based on the will of the committee.

February 28th, 2019Committee meeting

Michael Keenan

Transport committee  Madam Chair, that's a great question. A contaminated site in the Transport Canada portfolio would be lands owned within the Transport Canada portfolio and have a contamination from historic activity. Often airports have PFAS, that foam that was used in firefighting drills, and o

February 28th, 2019Committee meeting

Michael Keenan

Transport committee  The concerns vary by the contamination. PFAS, the firefighting foam that was historically used in airports, as an example, is used in drills. It was not known at the time, but it contains compounds toxic to humans. It gets in the groundwater. We're working on remediation plans
