Canada is proposing changes to their seaplane regulations.

This issue is particularly important in Canada because of the extensive use of seaplane travel in their more remote areas.

Brevity is a virtue when using Twitter, since you can't say much in 140 characters (then again, the world would probably be a better place if people spent less time reading their cell-phones, anyway).
