Join us Tuesday, March 28th at 7 p.m. at the Claremont Legion Hall, where we are guests of the Claremont District & Community Association.

Our basket almost runneth over! With our Herongate Barn Dinner Theatre event having raised close to $8,000 from tickets sales and a fabulous Silent Auction, we are delighted to report that we’ve now raised over $72,000 for our Ag Study. That means we are within 15% of our goal of it.
It was 45 years ago today that thousands of people learned their homes, farms, communities — their very lives — had been taken over, without warning, by the government. It was a massive expropriation for an airport that was never built.

We’re thrilled to announce that, thanks to the overwhelming support of our partners, members, and community, we’ve reached the halfway mark of our fundraising campaign in just over two weeks!

Land Over Landings has launched an Agricultural/Rural-Growth Economics Study of the Remaining Pickering Federal Lands, and we need your help. We are a volunteer, not-for-profit group. We operate on a shoestring, fuelled by tenacity, hard work, and vision. We’ve never had a fundraising campaign before. We’re starting one now.
On Monday, November 21 at 7:00 pm, Council is scheduled to ratify its decision from last Monday’s meeting, altering the wording of Recommendation #4 for the Official Plan (see below). Council will also decide whether to call a by-election or appoint a new Councillor for Ward 3. We need you again at Pickering City Hall to hold Council’s feet to the fire.
Land Over Landings has learned that Pickering Council will debate asking the federal government to fast track the building of the Pickering Airport. Join us in the Council Chambers, 7 p.m., on Monday, November 14.
