ST. JOHN’S, Nfld. – On Nov. 17, 2000, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador will make a submission to the Canada Transportation Act Review Panel.

The Department of Works, Services and Transportation is preparing government’s submission and invites all interested individuals and organizations to submit comments or proposals to be included with the province’s report. Some issues the province plans to address are safety, accessibility, intelligent transportation systems, as well as air, marine and highway policies.

“This is the province’s opportunity to provide input into and possibly make changes to the federal transportation policy,” said Rick Woodford, Works, Services and Transportation Minister.

“I hope stakeholders will seize the opportunity to raise provincial transportation issues with this national panel.”

Anyone interested in making a submission to the department is asked to contact Doug Shea, Department of Works, Services and Transportation by telephone at 709-729-3637, fax 709-729-0283 or e-mail n
