Transport committee  I would say that we are currently reviewing a risk-based system, Mr. Chair. In fact, if shortcomings are identified, then we'll adjust accordingly as we do and as we carry out our oversight activities with respect to these vehicles. I will say that the tug industry in B.C. has b

Transport committee  That is indeed the point from a risk-based perspective. As the member mentioned, Mr. Chair, this is a vessel of a certain weight, and the regulatory posture at Transport Canada under our regulatory regime is based on the size or the weight of the vessel.

Transport committee  I can follow up, Mr. Chair. The process would depend on the extent of the details and the volumes of documentation that are submitted, but the department understands that this is an important issue. As we review all such documentation received from a regulated industry, we would

Kevin Brosseau

Transport committee  Mr. Chair, there is a process, and in fact what an airport would have to do is submit documentation to Transport Canada hitting on the elements identified in the International Civil Aviation Organization convention. Those requirements will be, and in fact already have been, commu

Transport committee  Thank you to the member for the question. I'm very proud in my role as the senior ADM of safety and security, joined by a few thousand employees, in terms of the ability to be able to pivot to provide and ensure safety and security for Canadians across the transportation modes,

Health committee  The public health advice we received is that physical distancing should be maintained whenever possible. We put in place a system of several measures—I'll call it a layered approach—where there's no one single point of failure. That's why we have the questions, the physical obser

Health committee  I'm not sure what type of aircraft that was, but I can certainly turn to my colleague Mr. Robinson, who might have a better answer for you.

Kevin Brosseau

Health committee  Thank you very much for your question. I am sorry, but I do not know why the mayor made those comments. It is very difficult, if not impossible, for me to answer that question.

Health committee  I am Franco-Albertan, so I will try to answer in French, and if I need to switch to English, I will. I will say that taking temperatures is just one of several steps that help airlines make sure that sick people do not set foot on a plane or in another airport.

Kevin Brosseau

Health committee  We frequently talk to big companies like WestJet and Air Canada about the steps they are taking. We can certainly ask them to put in place certain protocols. So I would say that it is a result of our discussions, and also because they are looking at what other airlines around the

Kevin Brosseau

Health committee  Thank you. I'll start the answer and then I'll turn it over to one of my colleagues who is far more proficient. I think it's important to note that the aviation industry, as I mentioned before, is heavily regulated in Canada to ensure the strongest safety measures are in place t

Kevin Brosseau

Health committee  That's a powerful email. I had similar discussions with my family at the end of January. We worked very closely with Labour Canada, Health Canada and labour unions to assess, through all those lenses that you've identified, the situation for key transportation workers in Canada
