NO TO A PICKERING AIRPORT!

YES TO LAND OVER LANDINGS!

Because food is a GROWING concern

 

On March 2, 1972 (44 years ago!), 30 sq. miles of prime farmland were expropriated for an airport that was never built. Then, on June 11, 2013, Ottawa announced it would proceed with the airport after all. The good news? About a quarter of the Federal Lands would become part of the Rouge National Urban Park. By July 11, 2015, over half the Lands had been given to the Park. All those farms will stay farms!

On July 31, 2015, Dr Gary Polonsky was appointed as an independent advisor to study the economic development potential of the remaining Lands, including a possible airport. He submitted his report at the end of March. Now we wait and see what happens.
