The final report is divided into three sections. The introduction attempts to place the case studies in comparative perspective and discuss constraints and prospects in the making of federal marine transportation policy. The second section provides an overview of the group's findings and recommendations concerning federal marine transportation policy in five discrete geographical sub-systems: (1) the deep-sea context, (2) the southern coastal regions, (3) the Great Lakes, (4) the Mackenzie River and Hudson's Bay, and (5) the High Arctic. These areas are examined in terms of a group of domestic and international variables. The final section examines a number of critical factors or problems which tend to affect the development of marine transportation policy across all or most geographical contexts, factors and problems which include: technology and intermodal movements in Canadian ports; port administration models; the impact of marine transportation regulations; shipping and the shipbuilding industry.
