Endorsement Statement: Former TPA Board Member Douglas Reid
Read the Endorsement Statement from the Former TPA Director TORONTO - "Expanding the Island Airport also means it will inevitably become a site for increased corporate jet use. A waterfront that belongs to everyone cannot be compromised just to benefit private companies and the 1% who own and manage them. Our city's great strength used to be the quality of life we provided for all. If this plan is approved, we will make the same avoidable mistake as other societies - privatizing public spaces in favour of increased privileges for the few. It is wrong; it is unnecessary; it can be avoided." Douglas Reid, Associate Professor & Distinguished Faculty Fellow in Strategy, Queen's School of Business & Toronto Port Authority, 2006-2009: Board Committees: Governance (member); Outreach and Communications (Chair).
