ATC instructed ASQ5096, a Bombardier RJ700 (N717EV), to turn right to a heading of 030 to intercept the localizer and cleared the flight for an ILS approach to Runway 06L. The read back was unreadable because at least two aircraft responded so ATC re-specified that the clearance was for ASQ5096. Shortly after, ATC observed ACA871 in a right turn from downwind, 6 nm south of the approach, seemingly turning to a heading of 030. ATC immediately instructed ACA871 to turn left for evasive action. The separation between ASQ5096 and ACA871 was reduced to 2.1 nm and 500 feet, where 3.0 nm or 1000 feet is required. ACA871 was then re-sequenced and landed safely on Runway 06L.
The Terminal Controller instructed an Expressjet Airlines Bombardier CL-600-2C10 Series 700 (ASQ5096), from New York (KLGA), NY, to Montréal (CYUL), QC, to turn right heading 030 to intercept and cleared the Instrument Landing System (ILS) approach for Runway 06L. The readback was unreadable because at least two aircraft responded so the Controller re-specified that the clearance was for ASQ5096. Shortly after, the Controller observed an Air Canada Boeing 777-333ER (C-FIVW/ACA871), from Paris (LFPG), France, to Montréal (CYUL), QC, in a right turn from the downwind 6NM south of the approach seemingly turning to a 030 heading.
