Recipients of NoJetsTO emails received the message below today. It invites supporters of a jet-free waterfront to sign a welcoming card to Transport Minister Marc Garneau.
The last weeks have been momentous for our waterfront. We now have a Liberal federal government that has committed to stopping the wrong-headed jets proposal.
The Liberals’ promise to protect the current Tripartite Agreement that governs the Island Airport was reiterated before and after the election. We now expect the new Transport Minister Marc Garneau to fulfill the Liberals’ promise.
We look forward to working with the new federal government to move past the jets proposal and continue the revitalization of our waterfront.
That we have reached this point is the result of 2.5 years of hard work by countless residents from across Toronto who stood up for our waterfront – including you.
The new federal government was elected on the promise of stopping the airport expansion and we will make sure they will stand by their word.
Please take a moment to sign the NoJetsTO welcome card to Transport Minister Garneau.
Thank you so much,
Norman Di Pasquale
