Incident at HALIFAX / STANFIELD INTL NS (CYHZ) (Alleged Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs) infraction)

N287KB, MD-90 inbound to Halifax and SKK620, B-1900, departing Halifax had less than the required IFR spacing when the terminal controller was vectoring the departure clear on the inbound. However, the preliminary investigation indicates N287KB initiated a FUNDY6 arrival at Halifax when the terminal controller expected the flight to continue inbound to the VOR. TSB evaluating.
TSb update:A04A0071: N287KB, an MD90 inbound to Halifax, had less than the required amount of IFR separation with SKK620, a Beech 1900 on departure vectors. Separation was reduced to 2.2 nm in an area where 3 nm was required. Initial indications are that N287KB initiated a FUNDY6 arrival at Halifax instead of continuing as expected inbound to the VOR. NavCanada will be conducting an OSI.
