Transport committee  I'll speak to the first part, Mr. Chair.

Transport committee  Perhaps my colleague Ms. McCardell may speak to the others. We've absolutely worked very closely. In fact, ministers have made multiple representations and statements at ICAO exercising our concerns and describing what we would like to see from Iran—all the way from clear, trans

Transport committee  What Minister Alghabra was referring to was a joint commitment that emanated out of the safer skies forum at the beginning of December of last year. It really was an expression, almost like a joint statement, that came out of an international meeting. That's how I view it. Regar

Transport committee  I would start with the fact that, first of all, the conflict zone information office, CZIO, has been stood up. We've had a number of important meetings, with agreements signed. Canada has issued a notice to airmen over airspaces around the world and has ongoing dialogue in an imp

Transport committee  We were very fortunate to be identified to receive funds through the budget a few weeks ago, which will go a long way toward enabling us to give the stability and to crystallize the work here at Transport Canada, but it is a multipronged, multi-departmental, multi-country initiat

Transport committee  I think it's really important—and Minister Garneau spoke to it—that Iran is the country that has all the information. It has the information to be able to make that determination. The commitment the Prime Minister and the ministers have made is to get all those facts properly u

Transport committee  I can't speak to what information Ukraine had access to in the context of the safety investigation, as an accredited representative, because they of course represent the state of the airline. What I can say is that this was a fundamental reason why the forensic examination team

May 13th, 2021Committee meeting

Kevin Brosseau

Transport committee  I'll speak to a couple of aspects related to that. First of all, the report that was released by Iran, their final investigative report, talked about measures that had been taken, but I think it left significant gaps and questions in our minds associated with the measures and st

May 13th, 2021Committee meeting

Kevin Brosseau

Transport committee  Thank you, Mr. Bachrach, for the question. Let me lay out the groundwork in terms of some of the decision-making in the first place. You are correct that most airlines have some sort of a security function or a safety function that will make a determination based on the carryin

May 13th, 2021Committee meeting

Kevin Brosseau

Transport committee  I'll start that answer, and perhaps my colleagues from Global Affairs might want to speak about public notice. I'll say, first of all, that we knew, based on the activity and the heightened tensions in that area, that the conflict had escalated. On that date, we talked to Air Ca

May 13th, 2021Committee meeting

Kevin Brosseau

Transport committee  I think what the honourable member is speaking to is exactly at the heart of safer skies and the work we're doing in terms of exchanging information with other countries. On the issue of the NOTAM, which I've talked about many times, it is available to all airlines, while our r

Transport committee  Certainly, it is a very dynamic situation going on currently in Israel. I don't want to speak too much about a current active environment. The conflict zone information office is actively monitoring that, engaging in regular conversation with Air Canada, our only carrier that fli

May 13th, 2021Committee meeting

Kevin Brosseau

Transport committee  It's an important element of the work that safer skies and the conflict zone information office do in working with other authorities such as the FAA and the states of those airlines that you mentioned, Mr. Kram, so that information is shared and people are on a level playing fiel

May 13th, 2021Committee meeting

Kevin Brosseau

Transport committee  I will start the answer and then turn to my colleague at Global Affairs. We're in very close contact with Global Affairs regularly to ensure that the proper advice is being given to Canadians through the GAC travel advisories. Let me turn it over to my colleague Ms. McCardell.

May 13th, 2021Committee meeting

Kevin Brosseau

Transport committee  It's a difficult question to answer because of the dynamic nature of conflict zones and international safety, but I will say a few things. Post-MH17, the Dutch did a significant amount of work and made progress in relation to ensuring the safety of international civil aviation.
