Transport Canada Responds to Aircraft Activity Complaints

In the summer of 2017, the Municipality of East Hants heard from a number of residents quite concerned with aircraft activity near local homes and businesses. While the Municipality has no current role to play in the activity going on in our community in relation to helicopters in our residential/agricultural area, Council chose to voice its concern with current Transport Canada legislation and has requested that the law be changed to ensure more consultation in the future.

In September 2017, East Hants Council sent a letter to The Hon. Marc Garneau.

Earlier this month, Council received a letter of response from Minister Garneau.
