Just being CONSIDERED two years after the fact. WHY SO LONG, and why hasn't this been made a mandatory condition already? Gives credence to the previous comment of BELLS re.waiting for it to happen again before acting. GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER, AND MOVE ON THIS NOW.

I would like to see the Transport Safety Board work at getting the problem corrected by way of having a new gear box designed so that there is no posability of loss of oil from the gear box while the aircraft is in operation. This doesn't sound like an impossable task.

Transport Canada says it will CONSIDER whether to require changes to the design of a gearbox that lost oil and was a cause in the fatal crash of Cougar Flight 491 off Newfoundland two years ago.....6 words into the story and it's all I needed to hear....just considering that the changes ARE NOT required tells us all that they are just waiting for it to happen again and then MAYBE they will CONSIDER having these aircrafts safe enough to fly our loved ones back and forth to work..so very very sad to read.
