NoJetsTO's Boat Protest was a huge success, with dozens of boaters and kayaktivists taking to challenging waters to send a message on No Jets to the airport. The event's speakers included 3 time Sailing Olympian Paul Henderson, local MP Adam Vaughan, Ward 20 Councillor Joe Cressy and Federal University-Rosedale Candidate Jennifer Hollett. After the speakers concluded, NoJetsTO Chair Norman Di Pasquale led the 200 strong crowd on land in a chant of "No Jets!" which was undoubtedly heard by those at the airport who want jets.

 

 

 

The protest was covered by CTV, CP24, CBC, NOW Magazine, and the Toronto Sun, with reruns of the footage running for an entire day on a few channels.
