Show Notes:

On Monday April 16th 2012 at 8:30am there will be a group of concerned parents and community members at the corner of Queen's Quay and Bathurst in Toronto, holding up a banner on the green light of the intersection to ensure the safe crossing of their children to Waterfront School. As Airport related traffic continues to increase, this action to ensure safety of the children may well continue in mornings through this week while discussions continue.

CommunityAIR (Airport Impact Review) is a group watching over the expansion of the Toronto Island Airport and the impact on the local community of school, community centre, daycare and residential area: increased traffic, pollution, and safety concerns.

This audio is a phone conversation with Brian Iler, Chair of Community AIR, and also includes towards the end, a brief conversation I recorded with Adam Vaughn, Toronto councillor (see photo), on March 23, 2012 during a small protest by where the ferry lands from Toronto Island Airport.
