FOSTRA has developed a Survey regarding the future of the Billy Bishop Airport. It is open to all members of BQNA and will be important in how FOSTRA shapes their support regarding this issue.

The survey will go back to FOSTRA as well as the Waterfront Secretariat.

This is very important in terms of the future of the Waterfront, so I ask that everyone please complete the survey as soon as possible, and share with anyone who I might have missed. See above for the survey Link and information from FOSTRA.

Thanks so much.
Cheers Lesley Monette
BQNA Fostra Rep

******************************

Dear Members of Wards 4, 9, 10, 11, and 13,

The City of Toronto’s Waterfront Secretariat is putting together a report on the Tripartite Agreement and Billy Bishop Airport for the Executive Committee. This report will likely be delivered to the committee in the second quarter of 2024. This is an important issue for the future of Toronto’s Waterfront.

Below is a list of documents that highlight some of the major points regarding these matters. Please consider those documents and other readings in your survey answers.

At this time, we are looking for the opinions of individual members on the renewal of the Tripartite Agreement and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. The results of this survey will assist FoSTRA in identifying areas for consideration to bring forward to the committee from individuals in our five wards. Please forward this survey to your members so that they can respond individually.

Please note that this survey is anonymous. You do not have to log into your email account and if you’re already signed in, your email address will not be submitted with your answers without your approval in the form (Item 10).

Here is background material to review before you complete the survey:
