Dear Mr. Wappel:

Pursuant to Standing Order 109 of the House of Commons, I am pleased to respond on behalf of the Government of Canada to the First Report of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans on Canadian Coast Guard Marine Communications and Traffic Services.

The Government of Canada has carefully considered the findings and recommendations as stated in the Report. The government agrees with the Committee that Marine Communications and Traffic Services plays an important role in providing essential services to the marine community and the public. The government appreciates the Committee's Report and is committed to ensuring that all of the issues raised in it are adequately addressed. The government is pleased to advise the Committee that in some instances work is already underway to address a number of the Committee's findings and recommendations.

On behalf of the Government of Canada, I would like to thank the members of the Committee for their interest in the Canadian Coast Guard's Marine Communications and Traffic Services.

Yours truly,

Robert G. Thibault
