Incident at HALIFAX / STANFIELD INTL NS (CYHZ)

UPDATE TSB: A08A0037: The Canadair CRJ aircraft, operating as Air Canada Jazz (JZA) 8802, was on a flight from Moncton to Halifax. The ATR 42 aircraft, operating as Air Saint-Pierre (SPM) 1221, was on a flight from Saint Pierre and Miquelon to Halifax. JZA 8802 was on right downwind for a visual approach to runway 32, descending to 3000 feet. SPM 1221 was inbound from the east for a straight in visual approach to runway 32, descending to 2000 feet. When SPM1221 was 12 miles east of the airport, the controller instructed SPM 1221 to turn left 10 degrees to ensure spacing. The aircraft correctly read back the instruction, and then turned right 10 degrees. The controller recognized that the aircraft had turned the wrong way, and issued a second left turn to a heading of 250 degrees. JZA8802 passed behind SPM1221 with 2.5 miles lateral and 800 feet vertical spacing, were 3 miles or 1000 feet was required.
JZA8802, RJ 100, enroute from Moncton (CYQM) to Halifax (CYHZ), was on right downwind for a visual approach to Runway 32, descending to 3,000 feet. When SPM1221, AT42-300, enroute from St. Pierre (LFVP) to Halifax, was 12 miles east of the airport, the controller instructed SPM1221 to turn left 10 degrees to ensure spacing. The aircraft correctly read back the instruction, and then turned right 10 degrees. The controller recognized the pilot error, and issued a second left turn to a heading of 250 degrees. JZA8802 passed behind SPM1221 with 2.5 miles lateral and 800 feet vertical spacing. TSB Case Closed.

Incident at Québec

Other aircraft : AT42 ATR 42 Inter Canadien The 2 aircraft were in sequence to take off from runway 24 at Quebec. ICN1668 received departure instructions to turn left on a heading of 210 after take off. When ANU405 was ready to roll out, the controller gave him the information that ICN1668 was turning on heading 210. The ANU405 pilots took this information as an authorization and turned to a heading of 210 after take-off rather than climb in the runway axis. The 2 aircraft came within 2 miles lateral and 900 ft vertical where a separation of 3 miles and 1000 ft is required. BPR: NAN, NAP

Incident at Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario - 5 nm east (ATS operating irregularity)

CDR1885 (Canadian Regional AT42). While CDR1885 was on a straight-in back course approach to runway 29, C-FOPJ was cleared to depart runway29, turn left to a heading of 160 degrees and maintain 9000'. When C-FOPJ was radar identified after departure, it was instructed to "proceed on course when leaving 3500'" (CDR1885 being out of 25000' on descent). C-FOPJ read back "proceed on course to 3500'". The controller failed to detect the read-back error and a loss of separation occurred when C-FOPJ turned eastbound on course. At that time, the aircraft were on reciprical courses at 5 nm and 100' vertical spacing. When the aircraft actually passed, there was one mile lateral and 1600' vertical spacing. Ops. Impact -- unknown.
