Yesterday, Nov. 28, Transport Canada quietly released Dr Gary Polonsky’s report , “Jets & Jobs”, on possible future uses of the remaining Federal Lands. In a document rife with predictions, assumptions, and plans, “climate change” isn’t mentioned once, although it formed a major part of our submission. What the report does do is briefly summarize what its author heard from five stakeholder groups – business, government, agriculture/conservation, aviation, First Nations – in interviews around a series of set questions that took for granted an eventual airport on the remaining Lands.
WE AWAIT RELEASE OF DR POLONSKY’S REPORT
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.
