Response to Worksheet on Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (BBTCA)

By Transport Action Ontario | Aviation , Latest News



On December 9, 2014, the first public meeting for the Environmental Assessment (EA)  for  Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (BBTCA) was held.  This is one of a series of concurrent studies underway by the proponent (Toronto Port Authority) to amend the Tripartite Agreement to allow for an extension of the runway and the introduction of new-technology jets.

Transport Action Ontario has been very active on this file, and has met with the EA team twice to provide input into the scope of the study.  The public meeting posed four questions pertaining to the scope of the EA.  In response, we provided written answers to these questions, and sent these to the EA team.
