About Us

What We Want

David_Smiley_Photo_Public_Consultation_2014-01-27NoJetsTO is an organization of concerned citizens dedicated to preserving Toronto’s mixed-use waterfront and a regional Island Airport.

Representing residents across Toronto, the non-partisan organization NoJetsTO opposes the expansion of the Island Airport through jet aircraft and extended runways. NoJetsTO’s goal is to preserve the current state of the Island Airport by protecting the Tripartite Agreement that governs it.

While we do not oppose the status quo of the Island Airport, we are opposed to turning it into a Pearson-by-the-Lake.

Meet Our Chair

Born and raised in Toronto, Norman Di Pasquale has always had an interest in business and politics, going to rallies and starting his first business as a teenager. Since then, Norman has found himself between those two spheres as an entrepreneur an volunteer for various Toronto-based campaigns.

Norman fell in love with the waterfront after seeing Harbourfront “Quay to the City” event in 2004 where the plan for our waterfront was demonstrated. It illustrated to Norman the vast potential our waterfront had as a destination and a place to live. He moved there shortly after in 2006 where he still lives now.

Norman is a small business owner with his IT company En Vogue Computers established in October 2002. He is the proud father of two wonderful children.
