EXCHANGE OF NOTES BETWEEN CANADA AND PORTUGAL AMENDING PARAGRAPH 7 OF THE ANNEX TO THE AGREEMENT FOR AIR SERVICES BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES
The Canadian Ambassador to Portugal to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Portugal
March 5, 1958
Note No. 19
His Excellency the Minister of Foreign Affairs,
Dr. Paulo Cunha,
Palácio das Necessidades,
I have the honour to refer to the Agreement by exchange of Note between the Portuguese Government and the Canadian Government concluded on April 30, 1957, modifying paragraphs three and four of the Annex of the Agreement between our two Governments on air services between Canada and Portuguese territories, which was signed in Lisbon on April 25, 1947.
In accordance with the provisions of Article 8 of the Agreement on air services which was signed in Lisbon on April 25, 1947(2), and in order to balance the Agreement by exchange of Notes concluded on April 30, 1957, in respect of the modification of paragraph three of the Annex of this Agreement, I have the honour to propose that paragraph seven of the same Annex be similarly modified to read as follows:
(i) in English
"The route to be operated by the designated airline of the Government of Portugal shall be:
The Azores and/or Lisbon via such intermediate stopping places as may be mutually agreed to Montreal and countries beyond in a reasonably direct line in both directions."
(ii) in Portuguese
"A rota a explorar pela empresa aérea designada pelo Governo de Portugal será:
Açores e/ou Lisboa via pontos intermediários que forem mutuamente acordados para Montreal e países além em rotas razoàvelmente directas em ambos os sentidos."
If the foregoing provisions are acceptable to the Government of Portugal, I have the honour to propose that this Note and Your Excellency's reply to that effect should constitute an Agreement between our two Governments which will come into force on the date of Your Excellency's Note.
I take this opportunity, Excellency, to renew the assurances of my highest consideration.
