Markland Wood | Community Established in 1960

President's Update

Georgina Balascas

Greetings!

Markland Wood describes itself as a “circle of friends”. This month we would like to enlarge our circle and include the community of Humboldt. By now everyone is aware of the horrific accident that has tragically taken 16 lives and injured several others. The Markland Wood community would like to send their thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of all the victims. Our cover this month shows that we stand with the Humboldt Broncos and that we feel their grief and pain. May they find comfort knowing that others care.

Last month I wrote that we will be holding a Candidates Meeting on the evening of May 23rd at St. Clement Church. Please read the article by Tom Napier, a member of our Board, that gives more details about the evening. The MWHA feels this is a very important event and we encourage everyone to attend.

Ontario Election Candidates Meeting May 23rd, 2018

Ontario Election Candidates Meeting May 23rd, 2018

“With Great Power comes Great Responsibility” (quote from Spiderman) and there is no greater responsibility than electing (hiring) those who will govern us for the next term in office. Our future governments will determine the way we live for not only their next term in office but will also impact future generations in the way our children and grandchildren live. We are privileged to live in a country and province where we have the opportunity to elect our government and Marklanders hold a prestigious standing where we have a much higher voting turnout than most ridings in Canada, Ontario and the City of Toronto. Obviously the residents of
Markland Wood care about how we live and our future generations.

The act of voting takes only moments but will have a huge impact on lives. With that being said, it is the MWHA’s honour to provide you with the opportunity to meet, question and learn about your Etobicoke Centre candidates who will be asking for your vote. At the time of writing this article, there are only two candidates who are declared and will ask for your vote in the upcoming Provincial Election on June 7th, however, we expect many others from various Parties to participate and of course, all are welcome.

January 12 2017 UPDATE: Pearson International Airport

Good news! No weekend runway alternation (“noise sharing”) on our North-South runways!

Since our last Update, there has been an important development. The Community Environment and Noise Advisory Committee (CENAC) public meeting was held on December 6, 2017 at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel. Representatives of the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA), Navigation Canada (NavCan) and Transport Canada attended. At the CENAC meeting, the GTAA presented an update on their 2017-2037 Toronto-Pearson Draft Master Plan. The GTAA also presented their 2018-2022 Noise Management Plan. Lastly, NavCan presented a brief summary of the HELIOS Report that they commissioned in 2016, as well as NavCan’s formal Response to the HELIOS Report. We told you about the NavCan Response in our November Marklander. The following is a brief summary of the CENAC meeting. You can find the slides, speaking notes and video on the CENAC website.

The GTAA prefaced their remarks with a general statement that their planning is consistent with the east-west configuration of the airport.

Draft Master Plan (2017-2037): This Draft Plan is based on the need for Pearson to handle the significant growth anticipated in air travel over the next 20 years. Among several points, the GTAA advised that previous planning was based on the current size of aircraft but that new aircraft design will result in more passengers per flight and so fewer flights than originally anticipated to meet growth demands. The GTAA also discussed the proposed regional transit hub. The Draft Master Plan was submitted to the Minister of Transport on December 1, 2017. The Minister’s approval of the land-use portion is required.
