EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order.)

This Order approves the Interim Order Modifying the Operation of the Passenger Automobile and Light Truck Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulations made by the Minister of the Environment on April 12, 2013. Without this approval, the Interim Order Modifying the Operation of the Passenger Automobile and Light Truck Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulations would, in accordance with subsection 163(3) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999, cease to have effect 14 days after it was made. As a result of this approval, the Interim Order Modifying the Operation of the Passenger Automobile and Light Truck Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulations will, in accordance with subsection 163(5) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999, cease to have effect on the day it is repealed, the day on which regulations having the same effect come into force or one year after the order is made, whichever is earlier. In December 2012, the Department of the Environment published for consultation a set of proposed amendments to the Passenger Automobile and Light Truck Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulations, which included amendments that will have the same effect as the Interim Order Modifying the Operation of the Passenger Automobile and Light Truck Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulations.
