Over 43 years ago, 30 sq. miles of prime farmland were expropriated for an airport that was never built. On June 11, 2013, the federal government announced it would proceed with the airport after all.
But by July 11, 2015, over half the Lands had been given to the Rouge National Urban Park. Those farms will stay farms!
On July 31, Dr Gary Polonsky was appointed as an independent advisor to study the economic development potential of the remaining Lands, including a possible airport, and report back to Ottawa in June 2016.
Pave prime farmland? It's not wise and it's not right. We can't let it happen.
