Proposed Amendments to Aeronautics Act now Law

On December 16, 2014, Bill c-43, which contains provisions for amendments to the Aeronautics Act, received Royal Assent and is now LAW.

The implications regarding fill and aerodromes may now be quite significant, giving powers to the Federal Transport Minister to make an order prohibiting the development or expansion of aerodromes if it is not in the “public interest”. The accompanying regulations will follow, however this is a very hopeful first step in addressing the very serious issues around fill dumps at aerodromes.
