The pro-airport side is attempting to sway voters and federal candidates with a massive marketing campaign funded by the public purse and developer dollars to ‘sell’ the idea of a green ‘aerotropolis’. They want voters to tell candidates that they want an airport, and then choose the candidates who agree. But we say it’s time to demand action on climate change, and to tell candidates we will only support those who say NO to an airport.
“We are contacted constantly by people wanting to know how they can help. Here’s something each of you can do. Write Transport Minister Marc Garneau and tell him you don’t want an airport. Tell him democracy has been flouted in Durham Region.”
Land Over Landings is proud to host, Dr Dianne Saxe, one of the world’s top 25 environmental lawyers and the former Environmental Commissioner for Ontario, and Steve Parish, former Ajax Mayor and vocal champion of the Greenbelt, for a candid and action-oriented discussion of the threats facing our communities, especially “Toronto East Aerotropolis”!

Featuring a joy-filled image of a father and daughter pretending to play “airplanes”, the City of Pickering has launched a marketing campaign to convince residents it would be fun to live beside an airport. Ignoring for a moment the palpable irony and insult-to-injury of portraying this as a “happy families” situation, given the decades of […]
The City of Pickering “embraces” an airport on farmland! Join us in telling our MPs that we do NOT. In a move described as ‘sneaky’ and ‘underhanded’, this week council broke with 45 years of history and declared itself in favour of the proposed Pickering airport. The recommendation in support of an airport was buried in a bid […]
