Vancouver Airport Authority supports the decision by Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to share information related to its report following the death of Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver International Airport on October 14.

"Vancouver Airport Authority has been working closely with CBSA since the tragic death of Robert Dziekanski to examine procedures that could be put in place to ensure the best service for everyone using YVR," said Larry Berg, President and CEO, Vancouver Airport Authority. "We have no doubt that the findings of CBSA's report will enhance our understanding of the events leading up to Mr. Dziekanski's death."

The Airport Authority will continue to cooperate with all investigating parties to ensure that all available information is shared. On December 7, the Airport Authority will announce changes to be implemented at YVR based on preliminary results of the Airport Authority's ongoing internal review and work with other agencies.
