Quotes

...Board of Trade, the TPA put forward the criteria by which it would consider the Porter Proposal, should Council vote in favour," continued McQueen. "These criteria were grounded in a 'Do No Harm' approach that stated that the introduction of new-technology jets could not come at the expense of the environment, the boating and general aviation communities, or our residential and business neighbours. As we enter this next phase we will continue to look at this proposal through this 'Do No Harm' lens to ensure that, ultimately, any negotiated proposal is in the best interest of all constituent groups as well as the BBTCA - an airport which is an economic driver, an important gateway and, according to 90% of Torontonians, an asset to the City."
"In consideration of the tireless dedication and leadership that Minister MacKay provided the Department of National Defence during his time as minister, it seems befitting to honour his service this way" a briefing note to current Defence Minister Rob Nicholson states
"It's not just always about the economy. I can't believe I said that as a Conservative. But it's not always about the economy. You've got to balance it out with what's happening in terms of safety, and the environment too."
"I'm going to fight as hard as I can to get this through council" Ford said outside of his office at city hall
