WATERFRONT RESIDENTS MEET WITH THE MAYOR TO DISCUSS THE ISLAND AIRPORT
On Monday, February 8, a dozen waterfront residents met with Mayor David Miller in his office at City Hall. The delegation, which included representatives from the Bathurst Quay Neighbourhood Association, the St. Lawrence Neighbourhood Association, CommunityAIR, the Harbourfront Community Centre, the Toronto Island Community Association, the YQNA, and Councillors Pam McConnell and Adam Vaughan, met with Mayor Miller for nearly an hour.
The residents spent the first part of the meeting detailing the repeated violations of the Tripartite Agreement, unbearable traffic problems, Porter’s frequent curfew violations, the Toronto Port Authority’s failure to appear before last month’s Board of Health meeting, and the water, noise and air pollution generated by the Island Airport.
The second part of the meeting was spent working out a detailed plan for remedying the resident’s concerns. Mayor Miller promised that the city would begin taking a more active role as one of the three partners of the Tripartite Agreement.
