Fifty years ago today, in 1972, Justin Trudeau was a babe in arms when his father, Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau announced the expropriation of a vast area of North Pickering, Markham, and Uxbridge for an international airport that was never built and never will be.
Fifty years on, the world is a different place. That said, some things don’t change. 100% of us still need food. You still can’t grow food on a runway. And North Pickering has lived in the shadow of a threatened airport all these years and for Justin Trudeau’s entire life. Today we ask him to remove the shadow, correct the historic wrong, and make history – history we can celebrate – by cancelling the airport for good and transferring the rest of the Lands into Rouge National Urban Park, to be protected for the benefit of generations to come.
