To the Honourable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport
Dear Hon. Minister Garneau,
NoJetsTO, the largest citizen group dedicated to keeping Toronto’s waterfront jet-free, would like to congratulate you on your appointment as the federal Minister of Transport.
The future of Toronto’s waterfront is among your many responsibilities as the federal government’s signatory of the Tripartite Agreement.
It governs and defines the Island Airport as a regional airport while ruling out jet aircraft and the extension of the airport’s runways. This crucial agreement, by which the federal government is bound, has helped to maintain a balance of different uses on Toronto’s waterfront that is crucial for the ongoing revitalization.
As you know, the Liberal Party has committed itself to preserving the Tripartite Agreement in its current form and to protect Toronto’s waterfront from airport expansion. This is a far-sighted commitment to the future of Toronto’s waterfront that we applaud.
We are looking forward for a speedy implementation of the Liberal Party’s commitment in government policy and action.
Congratulations again and we look forward to hearing from you.
Norman Di Pasquale
