Stop Night Flight Increases at YYZ

June 14, 2013 - Update To May 22 Working Luncheon with GTAA

With the greatest disappointment we must inform our fellow Markland Wood residents that shortly after 2:00 p. m. on June 14, 2013, after the Marklander was published, we were ‘officially’ advised by the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) that Transport Canada had approved their request of December 22, 2011 to increase night flights at Toronto Pearson.

Please download and complete this petition and send it ASAP to Etobicoke Centre MP, Ted Opitz. As well, please carbon copy This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. in your reply.

Bitterly, our first alert was through our community contacts in downtown Toronto earlier in the morning that something had been approved. This was particularly distressing given the fact we were promised by the Regional Director of Transport Canada, Ms. Debra Taylor, that she would advise us of the decision directly when it was made, and we still await word from her office five days later, as of this writing. An MWHA Director took it upon himself to go to our Member of Parliament’s office, that of Ted Optiz, where the disappointing news was confirmed by his office staff. Mr. Opitz was in Ottawa and not available. Mr. Optiz’ staff shared that the brief message they had was not a press release but only the briefest note, and that it finished with a statement that a ‘comprehensive report’ was to follow. To the time of this writing, June 18, 2013 we have not been given any such report or further information aside from the GTAA’s mail out notification which also appears on their website. Hence, we await detailed information on Transport Canada’s decision but assume that all of the GTAA’s requested increase was approved.
