CANADIAN ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT AGENCY

CANADIAN ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT ACT

Replacement class screening report — Minor repairs to transportation infrastructure in Atlantic Canada National Parks — Public notice

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) declares that minor repairs to transportation infrastructure in Atlantic Canada National Parks contained in the Parks Canada Replacement Class Screening Report (RCSR) no longer need to undergo individual environmental assessments.

Parks Canada has conducted a replacement class screening which consists of a single environmental assessment of projects within a class. The details of this replacement class screening are provided in the RCSR on minor repairs to transportation infrastructure in Atlantic Canada National Parks.

Public consultation on the RCSR took place from March 14 to April 12, 2012. The Agency received no written submissions from the public during this period. It has reviewed the RCSR and has determined that the project screening process, as described in the document, meets the requirements of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (the Act) for the environmental assessment of this particular class of projects. It is also the Agency’s opinion that the class of projects described in the RCSR is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects when the design standards and mitigation measures described in the report are applied.

The declaration is effective June 8, 2012, and is subject to certain conditions, including the following:

  • The Agency agrees with Parks Canada that the declaration is valid until June 7, 2017;
  • The Agency will place the RCSR in the Canadian Environmental Assessment Registry (the Registry) at www.ceaa-acee.gc.ca; and
  • On a quarterly basis, Parks Canada will post on the Registry a statement of the projects for which the RCSR was applied, as required under the Act.

For further information, the public may contact the Class Screening Manager, Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency, 160 Elgin Street, 22nd Floor, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0H3, 613-960-0277 or 1-866-582-1884 (telephone), 613-957-0946 (fax), ClassScreening@ceaa-acee.gc.ca (email).

DETERMINATION

Liquid dielectric transformers

Notice is hereby given that, on June 22, 2012, pursuant to subsection 37.1(1) of the Special Import Measures Act, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal determined that there was evidence that disclosed a reasonable indication that the dumping of liquid dielectric transformers having a top power handling capacity equal to or exceeding 60 000 kilovolt amperes (60 megavolt amperes), whether assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, originating in or exported from the Republic of Korea, had caused injury or was threatening to cause injury (Member Downey dissenting) [Preliminary Injury Inquiry No. PI-2012-001].

CANADIAN INTERNATIONAL TRADE TRIBUNAL

RECOMMENCEMENT OF EXPIRY REVIEW

Refined sugar

On February 17, 2010, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) initiated, pursuant to subsection 76.03(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), an expiry review (Expiry Review No. RR-2009-003R) of its orders made on November 2, 2005, in Expiry Review No. RR-2004-007, continuing, with amendment, its orders made on November 3, 2000, in Expiry Review No. RR-99-006, continuing, with amendment, its findings made on November 6, 1995, in Inquiry No. NQ-95-002, concerning the dumping of refined sugar, refined from sugar cane or sugar beets, in granulated, liquid and powdered form (refined sugar), originating in or exported from the United States of America (United States), Denmark, the Federal Republic of Germany (Germany), the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, and the subsidizing of refined sugar originating in or exported from the European Union (the subject goods).

On June 17, 2010, the Canada Border Services Agency determined, pursuant to paragraph 76.03(7)(a) of SIMA, that the expiry of the orders made by the Tribunal on November 2, 2005, would likely result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and subsidizing of the subject goods.

On November 1, 2010, the Tribunal determined, pursuant to subsection 76.03(10) of SIMA, that the expiry of its order made on November 2, 2005, in respect of the dumping of refined sugar originating in or exported from the United States (the U.S. order) would likely result in injury to the domestic industry but that the expiry of its order made on November 2, 2005, in respect of the dumping of refined sugar originating in or exported from Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom and the subsidizing of refined sugar originating in or exported from the European Union (the EU order) would not likely result in injury to the domestic industry. The Tribunal therefore made an order, pursuant to paragraph 76.03(12)(b), continuing the U.S. order and made another order, pursuant to subparagraph 76.03(12)(a)(ii), rescinding the EU order.

The Tribunal’s order rescinding the EU order was the subject of an application for judicial review to the Federal Court of Appeal (File No. A-461-10). On May 30, 2012, the Federal Court of Appeal allowed the application for judicial review, set aside the Tribunal’s order and returned the matter to the Tribunal for reconsideration.

The Tribunal therefore gives notice that it will recommence the expiry review of the EU order. Any firm, organization, person or government wishing to participate in this proceeding must file a notice of participation with the Secretary on or before July 3, 2012. Each counsel who intends to represent a party in this proceeding must file a notice of representation, as well as a declaration and undertaking, with the Secretary on or before July 3, 2012.

This expiry review proceeding will be conducted by way of written submissions. Any party wishing to file a submission must do so no later than July 17, 2012. Parties wishing to respond to the submissions must do so no later than July 31, 2012.

All submissions must be filed with the Tribunal in 25 copies.

In accordance with section 46 of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, a person who provides information to the Tribunal and who wishes some or all of the information to be kept confidential must, among other things, submit a non-confidential edited version or summary of the information designated as confidential, or a statement indicating why such a version or summary cannot be made.

Written submissions, correspondence and requests for information regarding this notice should be addressed to the Secretary, Canadian International Trade Tribunal, 333 Laurier Avenue W, 15th Floor, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0G7, 613-993-3595 (telephone), 613-990-2439 (fax), secretary@citt-tcce.gc.ca (email).

Further details regarding this expiry review proceeding are contained in the document entitled “Additional Information”, which is appended to the notice of recommencement of expiry review, Expiry Review No. RR-2009-003R, available on the Tribunal’s Web site at www.citt-tcce.gc.ca.

Comments will be accepted at public hearings and by mail, email and on-line until August 31, 2012.

The report examines whether the regulation of outflows from Lake Superior through the compensating works and power dams on the St. Marys River at Sault Ste. Marie might be improved to take into consideration the evolving needs of users on lakes Superior, Huron, Michigan and Erie. The report also examines the potential future impacts of climate change, a management strategy to better anticipate and respond to future extreme water levels, the feasibility and implications of restoring water levels in lakes Michigan and Huron and multi-lake regulation and its impacts throughout the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence system. The report and related supporting documents and peer review are available at the Upper Great Lakes Public Hearings Web site.
