EXPLANATORY NOTE
(This note is not part of the Interim Order)

It is imperative that, for the security of the handling, offering for transport and transporting of dangerous goods and for public safety before, during and after the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, the transportation of certain dangerous goods be controlled into, through and within thirteen zones that encompass competition and non-competition Olympic venues in and around Vancouver, Whistler and surrounding areas.

The Interim Order responds to requirements agreed to by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and is built on the work of the Vancouver 2010 Security Surface Technical Working Group. The Interim Order establishes thirteen controlled access zones where the handling, offering for transport and transport in a road vehicle or a railway vehicle of certain dangerous goods into, through or within a zone are controlled.

It is important to note that the times of day provided in the Interim Order are the times when certain dangerous goods may be handled, offered for transport and transported into, through or within the controlled access zones. It is also important to note that, in accordance with subsection 2(2) of the Interim Order, the streets that form the boundary of Zone 1, Zone 2, Zone 4, Zone 5, Zone 6, Zone 8, Zone 9, Zone 10, Zone 11 and Zone 13 are not part of the controlled access zones. For example, access to the Vanterm and Centerm inter-modal terminals by truck is available through Clark Drive.

The Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act, 1992, and the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations continue to apply within and outside the thirteen controlled access zones. Dangerous goods inspectors will be enforcing the Interim Order as well as all other requirements established under that Act and those Regulations during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.

The Interim Order will remain in force for 14 days after the day on which it is made unless it is approved by the Governor in Council. If so approved, the Interim Order will cease to have effect at 23:59:59 Pacific standard time on March 3, 2010. (GIC has now approved and the order will be in effect until 23:59:59 PST on March 3, 2010)
