Island Airport - Letter to Toronto Port Authority on Ground run-up Enclosure
After years of organizing and opposition, we received confirmation last November that Jets would not fly from the Island Airport - full stop. With that, our City could return to the work of ensuring existing airport operations better fit in with the local neighbourhood and the city - it is located within a local neighbourhood, abutting one of our most iconic parks, Toronto Islands Park, and is adjacent to a commuting corridor into downtown which is already congested. Work needs to be done to ensure that existing airport operations work better in this context.
To that end, Councillor Pam McConnell (Ward 28) and I recently sent a letter regarding the ground run-up enclosure at the Island Airport. You can read the letter here.
