The Vans RV 7A should have climbed the runway heading to 1100ft before turning crosswind, as per local published procedures. The tower controller said to the pilot of the Vans RV 7A that they were cutting off the traffic and the pilot reported that C-GTDK was in sight. No impact on other traffic.

A privately registered, amateur-built Vans RV 7A on a flight from Victoria, BC (CYYJ) was climbing on a tight crosswind, and narrowly avoided a collision with C-GTDK due to both aircraft performing avoidance manoeuvres. Air Traffic Control (ATC) verified that C-GTDK had its strobes and navigation lights on. ATC also confirmed with the Vans RV 7A, to which they replied "they are now". C-GTDK then made a full stop landing and expedited their runway exit at the request of ATC, due to the proximity of the Vans RV 7A on final for a touch-and-go.
