Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The Allan J MacEachen Port Hawkesbury Airport has been an essential piece of regional infrastructure for Cape Breton and the Strait Area since 1973;
  • The Allan J MacEachen Port Hawkesbury Airport provides 24 hours a day, 365 days a year services for important local services like EHS LifeFlight, the Department of Lands and Forestry, and the Canadian Coast Guard;
  • The operators of the Allan J MacEachen Port Hawkesbury Airport, Celtic Air Services, have invested over $2 million in the airport and surrounding communities since 2017, overseen a steady increase in traffic at the airport and promoted Cape Breton’s world-class tourist destinations across North America; and
  • The creation of a new airport in Western Cape Breton, using federal government funds would put all operations at the Allan J MacEachen Port Hawkesbury Airport at risk of closing.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to refrain from investing federal government funds in the creation of a new airport in Cape Breton
