Today we issued a Request for Proposal for a comprehensive agricultural/rural-growth economics study of the remaining Pickering Federal Lands. Our goal is to provide a practical, viable, economic alternative to an airport and urban development in this area.
All the interesting and informative content on our old site is (or soon will be) on this one too: latest news, area maps, videos, a detailed timeline, a library of resources, documentary photos, links to hundreds of pertinent articles from news sources worldwide.
We’re more than pleased to be able to report that our planned study of the economic potential of agriculture on the remaining Federal Lands has received the backing of the Durham Region Federation of Agriculture (DRFA), representing some 1000+ farm families.
On February 22 we took Dr Polonsky on our tour of the Lands and provided him with a perspective quite different from the narrative offered by Transport Canada when they showed him around.
