CANADA-NEWFOTJNDLAND AIR TRANSPORT AGREEMENT


Right Hon. L. S. ST. LAURENT (Acting Prime Minister): I wish to table copies of an agreement between Canada and Newfoundland, on air transport between Canada and Newfoundland, signed at St. John's on July 29, 1946. Hitherto the air service between Canada and Newfoundland and the use of Newfoundland fields in transatlantic civil aviation have rested on temporary arrangements made during the wrar. The present agreement places air traffic rights for both services on a permanent basis subject to cancellation by either party on twelve months' notice. The agreement also provides for the use of Goose Bay as a regular field in transatlantic aviation by the designated Canadian airlines; for the use of Torbay as the terminus of the Canada-Newfoundland service ; for the use of Goose Bay, Buchans and [Hr. St. Laurent.] Torbay as bad-weather alternates in civil air operations over Newfoundland; and for the use by Canada on most-favoured-nations terms of other airfields in Newfoundland made available for civil use.
