Michael Keenan

Transport committee  Just to build on Mr. Brosseau's comments, we have seen a pattern of incidents among the small tugs, as the member has indicated. Those are the ones below 15 tonnes. The bigger the vessel, the more stringent the rules get. We've done two things. We've done a fair bit of outreach

Transport committee  Just to add one point to the previous question in terms of raising the tug, I think one of the key challenges and issues in this particular circumstance is the depth of the water that the tug is resting in. It's quite deep, which puts people at risk bringing it up. It's a situati

Michael Keenan

Transport committee  Thank you for the remarks from the honourable member, Mr. Chair. There are several parts to the member's question. First and foremost, I just want to echo that our thoughts are with the families and that we appreciate the great pain they're in as a result of the loss of their l

Transport committee  It's a big question. At Transport Canada we're spending a lot of time looking at it. The committee member is right; the transportation sector writ large is the second-largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in Canada, at about 25%. We have seen in recent years advances in tec

Transport committee  I'll start that, Kevin, and then you may want to pick up on it. Mr. Chair, the question is very topical. NavCan has launched consultations and studies looking at adjusting the level of service for a range of aerodromes. The process by which the minister comes to a view as to th

Transport committee  Mr. Chair, I'll answer the initial part of that and then turn it over to Anu Marisetti, who's responsible for the program, to give a bit more detail. There are monies in the main estimates for the ZEV program. We've seen that the program has helped facilitate a fast take-up of t

Transport committee  Sure. I'd be happy to, Mr. Chair. Thank you for the question from the member. It's a good question. The purpose of the circular was to update information on international airport designations. I would say we recognize that we caught a few people by surprise, and we're continuin

Michael Keenan

Transport committee  Quite frankly, no. I think in this case we thought we had all the information in from the airports, but we didn't. We are basically going out to them and working through the process of consulting to build a more comprehensive list. In part, the process of developing the list ende

Transport committee  I'm going to turn it over to the assistant deputy minister of safety and security, Kevin Brosseau, to talk a little bit more about the process on that.

March 25th, 2021Committee meeting

Michael Keenan

Transport committee  The member raises a really good question. In fact, I think that exact risk that's identified by the minister really informed the policy that has developed in two ways. The first is on the test the member is referring to, the post-arrival test. The core issue here is that in the

Transport committee  Thank you for the question. I don't have exact numbers for the costs of the designated quarantine facility, but the system works.... The Public Health Agency of Canada has a network of designated quarantine facilities across the country and has—

Transport committee  As the member indicated, in developing the order with respect to the requirements for a three-day stay and testing, the Public Health Agency of Canada has provided some additional carve-outs, for example, for people travelling for essential medical care, and has indicated that it
