Approaching CYKZ, the flight crew of C-FOST conducted the RNAV approach to Runway 33. Shortly after passing waypoint SINRU (2.6 miles from the threshold of Runway 33), the flight crew observed a high-wing aircraft on a tight base leg for their intended landing runway. The flight crew initiated a go-around, and entered a right hand circuit for Runway 33 in VFR Meteorological Conditions (VMC). As the aircraft turned to line up with Runway 33 on final approach, the flight crew observed the same high-wing aircraft departing on Runway 15, flying towards them briefly before making a right turn. C-FOST subsequently landed without further incident.
UPDATE Aviation incident report #16260: A Chartright Air Beech B300 (C-FOST) was on the area navigation approach for Runway 33 at Toronto/Buttonville, ON (CYKZ). The aircraft was instructed by Toronto Centre to switch to frequency 124.80 by VIGSA. The first officer (FO) made the first call announcing the aircrafts intentions to proceed on the IFR RNAV approach. At least 3 subsequent radio calls were made after VIGSA prior to short final. A radio call was heard from a helicopter which announced its position relative to the field. Visual contact was also made with the helicopter. After crossing SINRU while in landing configuration, the pilots of C-FOST saw a high-wing aircraft on a tight base to final for Runway 33. There was a short and unclear radio call stating "... on final Runway 33". It was later learned that the aircraft was a privately registered Cessna 206H. The pilot in command (PIC) of C-FOST initiated a go-around immediately. C-FOST climbed to 1 800ft above sea level (ASL) and initiated a right turn to join the mid-right downwind for Runway 33. The right downwind was chosen as it was determined from the helicopters call that the high wing plan was in the vicinity of Runway 15. Some time later, the Cessna 206H made a call stating that it would be doing a "tear drop for Runway 15". While on the right downwind for Runway 33, C-FOST made calls requesting any aircraft in the vicinity to state their position. As there was no response or visual contact, C-FOST continued its approach and landed Runway 33 without further incident. Witnesses surmised that C-FOST and the Cessna 206H had come relatively close in their flight paths. It was determined that the Cessna 206H had not made the proper radio calls.

Incident at 61NM NE MOOSONEE ON (CYMO)

The pilot of a 164061 BC Ltd. Beech 200 (C-GJJT/WU201) from Iqaluit, NU (CYFB) to Moosonee, ON (CYMO) experienced an engine failure on the right side and declared an emergency. The aircraft proceeded on course to its destination, and landed safely with no incident at 2159Z.
Update TSB #A19Q0043: C-GJJT, a Beech 200 Super King Air aircraft operated by Wabusk Air, was conducting a flight from Iqaluit (CYFB), NU to Moosonee (CYMO), ON with 2 pilots and 3 passengers on board. As the aircraft started its descent, approximately 61 nautical miles north east of CYMO, the flight crew noticed fuel flow fluctuations and surging of the right engine (Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-42). The surging then intensified, and an R FUEL PRESS annunciator warning light illuminated. The flight crew executed the Quick Reference Handbook (QRH) procedure, however the problem persisted. As the flight crew prepared to shut the engine down, it flamed out by itself. The auto feather system was armed, and activated on its own. The flight crew declared an emergency and continued the flight to CYMO, where an uneventful landing was performed. Maintenance personnel found the standby fuel pump circuit board burnt. Troubleshooting of the standby and engine-driven boost pump is ongoing.

During the climb in uncontrolled airspace, approximately 40 miles northwest of CYIV, PAG209 obtained an IFR clearance to CYWG and to maintain 16 000 feet in controlled airspace from Winnipeg ACC. The controller also provided traffic information regarding a King Air enroute from CYTH to CYIV at 17 000 feet; but the call sign was not provided. SN696 reported the initiation of a descent from 17 000 feet on radio frequency 126.70 and the Mandatory Frequency for CYIV.

Winnipeg ACC cleared SN898 to descend out of control airspace and traffic information was provided to SN898 regarding PAG209s position. Winnipeg ACC then asked PAG209 if they were in contact with SN696. PAG209 responded they were not, but that they had TCAS traffic indication indicating that SN696 would pass to the right of PAG209 shortly. Subsequently, PAG209 communicated with Winnipeg ACC that visual passage of SN696 had occurred. SN898 reported passing through 18 000 feet. Moments later PAG209 reported to Winnipeg ACC that traffic had past them and they had responded to a traffic alert / resolution advisory. Radar data showed PAG209 descending through 12 100 feet and SN696 descending through 12 700 feet. The range between the two aircraft decreased to 0.1 miles laterally and 600 feet vertically. Traffic separation was increased when PAG209 responded to the TCAS resolution advisory and executed the descent. All aircrafts landed uneventfully
