This show will look at a recent proposal of the Toronto Port Authority to expand the small airports runways. If the project receives approval from Toronto City Council, the airport’s primary airline user, Porter Airlines, is anticipated to purchase Bombardier C-series jets, which have greater passenger capacity. Many island residents and community members have expressed concerns over noise, traffic, pollution and a reversal to the efforts to revitalize the waterfront. The show will dive into the issue.

Our expert guests are:

Vasiliki Bednar, Deputy Director at the Martin Prosperity Institute

Norm Di Pasquale, Acting Chair of NoJetsTO

Toronto City Councillor Pam McConnell, Ward 28 (Toronto Centre – Rosedale)
