EXCHANGE OF NOTES BETWEEN CANADA AND BELGIUM AMENDING PARAGRAPH 4 OF THE ANNEX TO THE AGREEMENT FOR AIR SERVICES SIGNED AT OTTAWA, AUGUST 30, 1949
The Ambassador of Belgium to Canada to the Secretary of State for External Affairs
AMBASSADE DE BELGIQUE
OTTAWA, May 25, 1956
No. 1101 / CL. 1268
The Honourable Lester B. Pearson,
Secretary of State for External Affairs,
I have the honour to refer to Article 7 of the Agreement for Air Services signed at Ottawa, August 30, 1949 by our two countries.
Article 7 reads as follows:
"If either of the Contracting Parties considers it desirable to modify any provision of this Agreement or its Annex, it shall notify the other Contracting Party of the desired modification and such modification may be made by direct agreement between the aeronautical authorities of both Contracting Parties to be confirmed by exchange of notes between the Contracting Parties."
Upon instructions from my Government, I have the honour to propose that paragraph 4 of the Annex to the Agreement be amended so as to replace Gander by Montreal on the route operated by the Belgian air lines.
If the foregoing proposal is acceptable to your Government I have the honour to suggest that this Note and your reply to that effect shall constitute an agreement between our two Governments.
I avail myself of this opportunity to express to you, Sir, the renewed assurances of my highest consideration.
The Secretary of State for External Affairs to the Ambassador of Belgium to Canada
