Letter to Minister Raitt in support of T.A.N.G. report

Re.: Aircraft noise and emissions

17 February 2015

Dear Minister Raitt:

The Leaside Property Owners’ Association Inc. would like to thank you for your support and assistance to the Toronto Aviation Noise Group (T.A.N.G.) in addressing two issues of significant importance to our community, overhead airplane noise and emissions. We are particularly appreciative of your personal initiative and facilitation over the last three years.

We are very encouraged by the detailed information collected by technical expert Captain David Inch in his supplementary report to your Ministry, and his proposals for mitigating those matters. The information in Captain Inch’s report is valuable to all in the airline industry, and we hope that his proposals can be implemented in the near future, to the benefit of us all!

We also recognize the important roles, in pursuing and seeking solutions, of our MP John Carmichael, and support from our MPP, Premier Kathleen Wynne, and Councillor Jon Burnside., who are copied in this letter. Leasiders have much for which to thank you all.

We look forward to moving forward constructively and cooperatively with you, and thank you again.

Yours truly,

Carol Burtin Fripp and Geoff Kettel,
Co-Presidents, LPOA

Lisa Raitt, MP, Minister of Transport
