Sign the Petition, Tell Stephen Harper to Stop the #Pickering Airport ( #cdnpoli #NoPickeringAirport )

Land Over Landings have posted a petition to tell Stephen Harper to stop the Pickering airport development citing the following points.

  • Building an unneeded airport is an inexcusable waste of taxpayers’ money.
  • Putting an airport or other development on foodland is grossly irresponsible; farmland is permanently destroyed by development.
  • Such development would eliminate important natural habitat and essential wildlife corridors adjacent to the new Rouge National Urban Park.
  • Foodland close to Canada’s largest and fastest-growing city must be fiercely protected to ensure future food security.
  • No government has a right to deprive future generations of an irreplaceable food and freshwater resource.
Sign and share the petition!

This airport is Pierre Trudeau's vision. It is still decades away. Take a chill pill.

It's not vacant land. People have been evicted already, and some wait for the notice.
