Additional Consultation on Northern Issues

A number of parties commented on issues specific to implementation of the regulations in northern regions of Canada. To address these concerns, Environment Canada prepared a short Discussion Paper on Development of the Federal Low-Sulphur On-Road Diesel Fuel Regulations in Relation to Northern Communities (see Appendix B). A teleconference was held on July 30, 2001 with parties that had commented on northern issues to further discuss the impact of the proposed low sulphur on-road diesel fuel regulations on northern communities. (The minutes from this call as well as comments received on the notes are included in Appendix B.)
