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’.

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”!

But all three were doubtlessly with us in spirit on April 3, as our agricultural economics study of the remaining Federal lands […]
