ACV'S IN CANADA: THE NEED FOR A FRESH APPROACH

THIS ARTICLE SHOWS THE EXTENT OF EXISTING CANADIAN LEGISLATIVE ATTEMPTS AT CLASSIFYING ACV'S AND HOW THESE APPROACHES FALL SHORT OF WHAT THE PUBLIC, THE INDUSTRY, AND THE GOVERNMENT REQUIRES FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE CRAFT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SYSTEM ENGINEERING CONCEPT. THE PROBLEMS FACING ACV'S IN THEIR OPERATIONS ARE DISCUSSED. OPERATION, SAFETY, AND LIABILITY CONSIDERATIONS ARE SHOWN TO BE UNIQUE WHEN COMPARED WITH THEIR EQUIVALENTS IN OTHER TRANSPORTATION MODES. THE AUTHOR ASSERTS THAT THE ACV MUST BE RECOGNIZED SUI GENERIS IN LAW, WITH ITS OWN STATUE PRESENTING A LEGAL FRAMEWORK CONSTRUCTED ACCORDING TO THE NEEDS OF THE VEHICLE. /AUTHOR/
