OUR 2023 AGM: WE LAUGHED, WE CRIED… It was our first in-person AGM since 2019. Hard to believe. This time, the meeting was held in Claremont United Church – rather appropriately, as the church was the place where Land Over Landings originated in 2005. We had a good turnout for this year’s meeting, despite the pall of wildfire smoke […]
On April 24, Pickering Council, for the third time in two months, will consider a motion to rescind its support for an airport. They need to hear loud and clear from YOU – especially Pickering residents – that Pickering is not a willing host for an airport!

A passionate new Land Over Landings supporter has launched a petition asking Ottawa to finally end any plans to build an airport on the prime — and increasingly precious — farmland of North Pickering. In case you thought this was settled long ago, and that no one would be crazy enough to suggest a new […]
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.

“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”!
