 Anyone who’s concerned about the incessant air traffic over the Greater Toronto Area and other areas in Canada should send the following two form letters (postage free) to the Minister of Transport Marc Garneau and to Ramesh Sangha who is the MP for Brampton Centre.  We can also reach the Minister of Transport by asking to be transferred to him at 1-866-599-4999.  We should also call NAV Canada (federal agency for flightpaths) at 1-800-876-4693 and the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) Noise Complaints Line at 416-247-7682.  They’re all refusing to do anything about this problem.  Let’s inundate their offices with letters and calls.

Dear Minister:

 

Please introduce legislation in Parliament to force NAV Canada to restore the flight path system over the GTA that existed prior to Feb. 9, 2012.  At that time, NAV Canada took a long standing flight path and made it shorter and narrower.  It’s ridiculous that millions of GTA residents should be subject to increased noise and reduced quality of life to save the airlines a few dollars in fuel costs.  Please refer to Marg Evans of the Toronto Aviation Noise Group who appeared on the Dale Goldhawk radio show on Sept. 3, 2014 on AM 740 who articulated many of my concerns. 

 

Please also ban all night flights at Pearson Airport.  This was last done at Pearson in the 1970s.  There are an average of 19 planes passing through Pearson overnight every night.  If Frankfurt and Tokyo airports can ban all night flights when they’re the 5th and 3rd busiest airports worldwide respectively, then Pearson should follow their lead.  The only night flight hours with a reduction at Pearson are between 12:30 am and 6:30 am and this is far too narrow a time window to encompass the evening and night time hours.

 

NAV Canada is good at dispensing their information but they’re extremely lousy at receiving information.  They're evasive and are refusing to accept comments from the public.  Marg Evans had a dialogue with the previous Transport Minister Lisa Raitt but the Minister was unwilling to meet her concerns.  The noise sanctioning mechanism  currently in place is insufficient.  In 2013 there was only one noise sanction in all of Canada which was in Montreal.

 

Sincerely,

 

your name and address

Call Ramesh Sangha, MP about this issue as well as the following Service Canada Centre issue at (905) 790-9211

AUTHOR: - ()

Ramesh Sangha, MP is also refusing to re-open the Service Canada Centre at 18 Corporation Dr. in Brampton, ON so we need to inundate him with letters and calls at 905-790-9211.

Anyone who’s concerned about the closure of the Service Canada Centre at 18 Corporation Dr. in Brampton, ON should also write (postage-free) to the Hon. Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development at the House of Commons, Ottawa, ON K1A 0A6.  This Minister is in charge of Service Canada.  According to the Department itself, Service Canada continuously assesses and makes changes to the service delivery network to remain responsive to the needs and service demands of Canadians and client demand is always taken into consideration.  It is thus very important to inundate these individuals with our letters, and the more letters that are sent the sooner we will see this office re-opened.
