Mr. Gerard Duquet (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Transport):
1. Final decision on construction of a new East-West runway at Vancouver International Airport has not been made.
2. Yes, as described in the official zoning regulations for Vancouver International Airport. These are height restrictions, which indirectly dictate the distance required between runway threshholds and any structures, including those for residential purposes.
5. No, but land is being reserved in the area for that purpose.
