We are pleased to release our contribution to Envision Durham, the 2019 Municipal Comprehensive Review of Durham Region’s Official Plan – specifically, the Review’s “Climate Change and Sustainability Discussion Paper.”
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.
October 31, 2016, marks the deadline for comments and submissions to the province’s Coordinated Land Use Planning Review. Land Over Landings recently submitted comments to Minister Mauro, Minister of Municipal Affairs for Ontario, on the Province’s proposed changes to the Land Use Plans.
