Insidetrack - Spring/Summer 2018 - 59

These goals are in the interests of transportation companies,
❱ shippers
and travellers, and the national economy as a whole.
The RMI has four consultation phases. The first dealt with
Accessible Transportation Regulations and has been completed.
Its results will have implications for passenger rail companies,
notably VIA, and for firms that provide equipment to such
companies. Based on what we heard during the consultations, we
expect the results to include a comprehensive set of accessibility
regulations to replace the current patchwork of regulations and
voluntary codes; a requirement that service providers plan for
accessibility and train their personnel accordingly; and clear and
enforceable standards that still leave scope for innovation.
The second phase of RMI consultations, also now concluded,
focused on the licensing of air carriers and approvals for
air charters.
The RMI's third and fourth phases will deal with consumer
protection for air passengers and rail-related regulations, and
will begin if and when Bill C-49 comes into force. A discussion
paper on rail issues will be released soon after Royal Assent,
and meetings with interested stakeholders will be arranged.
The paper will confirm the CTA's intent to integrate the existing
six rail-related regulations into a single Rail Transportation
Regulation - in the interests of streamlining and clarity - and to
fix outdated references to laws and programs that no longer exist.
The RMI is an ambitious effort to ensure that the regulatory
framework reflects the realities of a transportation system that is
faster, more automated, more complex, and more cost-sensitive
than ever. Our target is to complete all consultations, get the
regulations drafted, and secure the required dual approvals of the
CTA and Cabinet before the end of 2018.

Conclusion

Let me conclude by taking us back to Craigellachie on that cool
and damp November 7 morning.
The man standing immediately to Donald Smith's right as Smith
drove in the last spike was William Van Horne, the CPR's General
Manager. When the ceremony was over, Van Horne sent a telegraph
to Prime Minister John A. Macdonald that read: "Thanks to your far
seeing policy and unwavering support the Canadian Pacific Railway
is completed. The last rail was laid this (Saturday) morning at 9:22."
That disarmingly simple message belied the enormous boldness
and fortitude required to build the world's first trans-continental
railway across Canada's rocky shield, endless forests, great
prairies, and soaring mountains. When Macdonald was urged, in the
face of these challenges, to send the railway route into the United
States, his response was unequivocal: "No, I will not have it! The
railway will be built our way. We will build our kind of railway."
Creativity, collaboration, and determination got Canada the
railway that bound the nation together and hastened development
in the West. Creativity, collaboration, and determination have
allowed the railway industry, its suppliers, and its customers
to thrive in the intervening 132 years - and will be essential
if Canada is to be a leader in the global rail revolution. And
creativity, collaboration, and determination will allow the Canadian
Transportation Agency to play its part as a regulatory tribunal that
sets and applies clear and reasonable rules, and efficiently and
impartially resolves disputes. ■

buts vont dans l'intérêt des transporteurs, des expéditeurs,
❱ desCesvoyageurs
et de l'ensemble de l'économie canadienne.
Ce projet compte quatre phases de consultation. La première,
qui portait sur les transports accessibles, est terminée.
Elle aura des répercussions sur les sociétés ferroviaires de
voyageurs, notamment VIA, et les entreprises qui leur fournissent
de l'équipement. On peut s'attendre au remplacement de
l'assortiment actuel de réglementations et de codes volontaires
par une réglementation complète sur l'accessibilité; à ce que les
fournisseurs de services doivent planifier l'accessibilité et former
leur personnel; ainsi qu'à des normes claires et applicables qui
laisseront place à l'innovation.
La deuxième phase de consultations portait sur la délivrance de
licences et l'approbation des affrètements dans le transport aérien.
Les deux dernières phases s'intéresseront à la protection
des consommateurs pour les voyageurs aériens et au transport
ferroviaire. Elles seront lancées après l'entrée en vigueur du
projet de loi C-49. Dès que celui-ci recevra la sanction royale,
nous publierons un document de discussion et programmerons
des rencontres avec les intervenants intéressés. Le document
confirmera notre intention de fusionner les six réglementations
ferroviaires actuelles en une seule et de corriger les références
à des lois et des programmes disparus. Tout cela dans le but de
clarifier et de simplifier les choses.
L'IMR vise à ce que le cadre réglementaire reflète la réalité
d'un système de transport plus rapide, automatisé, complexe
et sensible aux coûts que jamais. Nous comptons boucler les
consultations, rédiger les réglementations et les faire approuver
par l'OTC et le cabinet d'ici la fin de 2018.

Conclusion

Permettez-moi de conclure en revenant à ce matin frais et
humide du 7 novembre 1885 à Craigellachie.
L'homme qui se tient à la droite de Donald Smith alors que
celui-ci enfonce le dernier crampon, c'est William Van Horne,
le directeur général du CFCP. Après la cérémonie, il a envoyé le
télégramme suivant au premier ministre John A. Macdonald :
« Grâce à vos politiques visionnaires et votre soutien indéfectible,
le Chemin de fer Canadien Pacifique est terminé. On a posé le
dernier rail ce (samedi) matin à 9 h 22 ».
Ce message d'une simplicité désarmante ne dit rien du courage
et de l'audace qu'il a fallu déployer pour bâtir le premier chemin
de fer transcontinental au monde à travers la roche du Bouclier
canadien, des forêts interminables, de vastes prairies et de
hautes montagnes. Devant tous ces obstacles, on avait tenté de
convaincre Macdonald de faire passer le chemin de fer par les
États-Unis. « Non, pas question!, avait-il répondu. Nous bâtirons le
chemin de fer à notre façon ».
Créativité, collaboration, détermination. Voilà ce qui a permis
au Canada de se doter du chemin de fer qui l'a uni et qui a accéléré
la colonisation de l'Ouest. Et ces trois éléments permettent à
l'industrie ferroviaire, à ses fournisseurs et à sa clientèle de
s'épanouir depuis 132 ans. Ils sont essentiels au leadership
du Canada dans la révolution ferroviaire mondiale. Enfin, ils
permettront à l'Office des transports du Canada de jouer son
rôle de tribunal de réglementation qui établit des règles claires et
raisonnables et qui résout les différends en toute impartialité. ■
