In April of 2017 Toronto Pearson International Airport, operated by the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) announced its plans to double air travel to 90 million passengers by 2040.
This expansion plan will not only lead to more air traffic for the Greater Toronto Area, but it will significantly raise the levels of risk as it relates to the personal safety for those using the airport and for those living in the surrounding communities.
As a result, the Community Alliance for Air Safety (CAAS) was formed as an independent alliance of residents who now represent concerned citizens from more than 19 communities.
We have also gained support from airport unions as well as several elected officials from the Municipal, Provincial and Federal levels of Government. (Visit our Friends of CAAS web page to learn more)
Our organization is called the "Community Alliance for Air Safety" (CAAS) and we welcome all residents who are concerned about the safety of airline passengers and our communities.
Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter and this web site to learn more and we hope you will join in on our campaign to unite and inform as many people about the operational changes at Toronto Pearson International Airport and increased risks to our communities.
Our site will be updated on a regular basis and we welcome your support, feedback and look forward to working together to ensure the safety and well being of all of our communities in the GTA.
Best regards, Community Alliance for Air Safety (CAAS)
