John Tory’s Endorsements in Close Council Race Trigger Questions on Jets position
Mayoral Candidate Backs Pro-Jets Candidate in Key Ward 16 TORONTO – This weekend John Tory endorsed 1 candidate whose election would strengthen the pro-jets faction on City Council, raising questions about the mayoral frontrunner’s agenda. Carmichael Greb, is employed by Porter Airlines’ prospective jet supplier. “Why is John Tory endorsing Carmichael Greb with her documented pro-jets stand and potential conflict of interest on the Island Airport issue?” NoJetsTO Acting Chair Norman Di Pasquale is asking. John Tory’s endorsement for Christin Carmichael Greb (Ward 16, Eglinton-Lawrence) comes one week prior to the October 27th Vote in a very tightly contested race.. “Why is Mr. Tory supporting a pro-Porter candidate that wants to harm our waterfront? ” NoJetsTO Acting Chair Norman Di Pasquale concluded. "With only a week to go before citizens elects a new council, we are troubled that John Tory wants to strengthen the pro-jets faction on council. What is Mr. Tory’s real agenda on this issue?” NoJetsTO is a coalition of concerned citizens dedicated to preserving Toronto’s mixed-use waterfront and a boutique 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 status quo at the Island Airport by protecting the Tripartite Agreement that governs it.
