APPLICATION by Stone Mountain Safaris Ltd. for suspension of Licence No. 962484.
File No. M4210/S152-1
Stone Mountain Safaris Ltd. (Licensee) is authorized to operate a domestic service, small aircraft.
Pursuant to paragraph 63(2)(b) of the Canada Transportation Act, S.C., 1996, c. 10, as amended (CTA), the Canadian Transportation Agency (Agency) may, subject to section 64, suspend a domestic licence in accordance with a request from the Licensee. Subsection 64(2) of the CTA requires that the Licensee give notice of its proposal to discontinue a domestic service and not implement its proposal until the expiration of 120 days, or 30 days if the service has been in operation for less than one year, after the notice is given or until the expiry of any shorter period that the Agency may, on application by the Licensee, specify by order.
Having considered the application, the Agency finds that compliance by the Licensee with section 64 of the CTA is unnecessary in this case. Accordingly, the Agency, pursuant to paragraph 80(1)(c) of the CTA, exempts the Licensee from the application of that provision.
Accordingly, the Agency, pursuant to paragraph 63(2)(b) of the CTA, suspends the licence.
To reinstate the licence, the Licensee is provided with one year to file an application. If, at that time, the Agency concludes that the Licensee meets all the applicable requirements of the CTA, the Agency will reinstate the licence.
If within one year the application for reinstatement is not filed or the Licensee does not meet any of the applicable requirements of the CTA, the Licensee is provided with an additional 30 days following the expiration of one year to show cause why the licence should not be cancelled.
