We are pleased to announce that on February 10 2010, the Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities, the Honourable John Baird, reappointed Mr. William Charles Rooney, of Morell, Prince Edward Island, as Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors of the Atlantic Pilotage Authority, for a term of four years.
Mr. Rooney, a Public Interest representative on the Board, has owned and operated tour and travel related businesses in the Atlantic region. He is currently an investment advisor.
Pilotage & Other Charges
The Pilotage Act requires that pilotage tariffs be fixed at a level that permits the Authority to operate on a self-sustaining financial basis, and that the tariffs set be fair and reasonable. The goal is to have each area become financially self-sufficient to eliminate cross-subsidization among ports.
