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 its intention
to proceed with the airport after all.
We say NO! No Pickering Airport. No more
waste of taxpayers' money. No more Mirabels. We say YES: Yes to sustainable farming. Yes
to greenspace and watersheds. Yes to food
security for our children.
Because, in this 21st century, food is a GROWING concern!

Land Over Landings wrote to Transport Minister Raitt on the need for government transparency regarding an airport at Pickering. No reply as yet. Read the letter here.
IMPORTANT: Keep calling your MPs. It's working! Apparently GTA Tory MPs are getting more angry calls over this current proposed waste of taxpayers' money than about any other recent crisis/scandal. Not only are the cracks starting to widen, but your calls are driving the wedge. Keep calling.

produce on our own land.”
