Canada : NOJETSTO wants BBTCA to function as a regional airport not a mini PEARSON AIRPORT.

The founder of the anti-airport expansion group, NoJetsTO wants to make it clear that he is not against an island airport.

Anshul Kapoor is only against an expanded airport with jets landing there.

He says that he was not part of the original battle in 2003 when opponents wanted to turn the airport into a park.

He says that he flies Porter and walks from his condo to the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (BBTCA).

His concern is the growth of the airport has created a hellhole at the Bathurst Quay, traffic congestion, an influx of passengers and ongoing construction that is impacting the Queens Quay revitalization.

There's been no long-term vision for the airport or the area, which has turned into a free-for-all.

We re saying keep the airport and make it a better regional, boutique, niche airport that it is supposed to be, Kapoor said.

If you try to throw it out as a jetport or a mini-Pearson, you re trying to grow it out of its footprint into something it was never intended to be.
