Emerson Report: A Step Forward




Ottawa, ON, Canada November 30, 2012 -- The Canadian Space Society (CSS) is pleased to welcome the release of the highly-anticipated Aerospace Review, headed by David Emerson.  The report, of which the space sector figured highly, is just the latest and most official of calls to the Canadian Government to pay more attention to the space sector and its various stakeholders.  

Mirroring key aspects of the Space report, the CSS has long been advocating the need for a clear, comprehensive and effective Canadian Space Policy. Further, the Review's emphasis on support for technology development and an identification of the need to establish a level playing field for Canadian space companies vis-a-vis other international players is especially timely.  According to CSS President, Wayne A. Ellis, "Direction from the top is long overdue. This, coupled with the fact that Canadian companies have been able to obtain significant returns on minimal government investment point to a critical time in Canada's aerospace industry, and one that should not be continually ignored, lest such capability be lost."
