Mississauga cries foul, votes to halt negotiations with airport authority

“No one should meet with them until our staff tells us there is a real negotiation underway,” said Councillor Carolyn Parrish, arguing the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) has been operating outside of the city’s rules and regulations since its inception.

Looks like the GTAA is not playing by the rules across the board, while Hillary Marshall, GTAA’s VP of Stakeholder Relations and Communications makes statements like “We know this means being a good neighbour to the communities and region we serve,” December 2017



"This memo is not a regulatory document that dictates or limits how we use runways, and it does not limit the number of permissible aircraft movements" Michael Mendel - Manager, Government Affairs and Stakeholder Relations GTAA

THE FACTs: In 1992 Transport Canada made it very clear how the North/South Runways should be used stating "SAFETY" as the primary reason. There are detailed government reports that have mandated the runways usage models.

  • To date the GTAA or NAV Canada continues to say they "do not need to follow the rules"  and have not provided any evidence of a formal a due diligence process inline with International Standards and Best Practices to refute the Transport Canada Mandated usage models for runway operations at Toronto Pearson International Airport

  • Our Goverment oversight Ministry does not seem to be engaged or enforcing the rules ... 

  • THIS IS A NATIONAL ISSUE (CAAS is learning that the same lack of Goverment oversight is happening at many Airports across Canada)​
