2008 Transportation in Canada A n O v e r v i e w 3 I n t r o d u c t i o n The 2008 Overview report presents a brief overview of the state of transportation in Canada using the most current information available. The Minister of Transport has a statutory responsibility to table in Parliament, each year, a brief overview of the state of transportation in Canada and every five years, an expanded and more comprehensive review. This responsibility derives from Section 52 of the Canada Transportation Act (1996), as amended in June 2007, with Section 52 (1) calling for an Industry Overview in the following terms: “Each year before the end of May, the Minister shall, using the most current information available, prepare and lay before both Houses of Parliament a report providing a brief overview of the state of transportation in Canada.” And Section 52(2) calling for an Industry Review every five years in the following manner: “Every five years, the report referred to in subsection (1) shall be expanded to a comprehensive review of the state of transportation in Canada which shall include (a) the financial performance of each mode of transportation and its contribution to the Canadian economy; (b) the extent to which carriers and modes of transportation were provided resources, facilities and services at public expense; (c) the extent to which carriers and modes of transportation received compensation, indirectly and directly, for the resources, facilities and services that were required to be provided as an imposed public duty; (c.1) the long term outlook and trends in transportation in Canada; and (d) any other transportation matters that the Minister considers appropriate.” This overview report is the second such report submitted by the Minister since the coming into force of the amended Section 52 of the Canada Transportation Act . In producing this overview report, Transport Canada used the most current data and information available.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
