|Together, we will stop the jets on our waterfront – and last week’s public consultation in Scarborough was proof of that.|
Scarborough’s Message to Councillors: Stop the JetsNext: Executive Committee Meeting, March 25
Several hundred residents braved the cold to pack the Laurier Collegiate Institute, with an overwhelming majority rejecting Porter’s jet plans. A heartfelt thank-you to everyone who came out.
While Porter and the TPA performed their usual propaganda roadshow, NoJetsTO gave the straight talk about the dangers to Toronto’s waterfront.
Sadly, Councillors like Paul Ainslie seem oblivious to the damage jets on our waterfront with flight paths affecting Scarborough will have.
But Ainslie, Moeser and Crawford got the clear message that they will vote against the wishes of many of their constituents if they vote for the jets. Let’s hope that these gentlemen will wisen up.
City Councillors and their staff keep tabs on how many calls and emails they receive on an issue. So please keep calling and emailing them (click here to look up councillors’ contact info).
On Tuesday, March 25, the City’s Executive Committee will vote on the jet issue. We need you to show your opposition and ideally make a deputation. Please let us know if you can come by clicking here.
We know that the Toronto Port Authority has spent almost $2 million on advertising since last spring – with Porter certainly spending much more. As a grassroots organization, we are pushing back as much as we can with ads in local newspapers.
Help us put up ads in papers like NOW Magazine and local newspapers in places like Scarborough and North York. Please pitch in today.
Whether it’s through a donation, inviting our friends to sign the online petition or joining us at City Hall on March 25, we can all make a difference in this fight.
Thank you so much for all your help.
