NO TO A PICKERING AIRPORT!
YES TO LAND OVER LANDINGS!
Because food is a GROWING concern
Over 40 years ago, 30 square miles of prime farmland in Pickering were expropriated for an airport that was never built. On June 11, 2013, the federal government announced it intended
to proceed with the airport after all.
We say NO: No Pickering Airport. No to industrial or other development.
waste of taxpayers' money. No more Mirabels. We say YES: Yes to preserving prime foodland and freshwater streams. Yes to ensuring food
security for ourselves and our children.
Because, in this 21st century, food is a GROWING concern!
“We will in fact need a new airport someday… so as to fly in the fresh food we can no longer produce on our own land.”
~ Charles Godfrey, POP leader, 1972-75
