a proponent can easily develop an aerodrome without having to worry about the environment or the laws and regulations that apply to most citizens;
it is necessary to implement rules for the establishment of an aerodrome to prevent any form of irreparable damage to the environment;
it is also necessary to establish rules to avoid harm to owners and residents whose properties are located adjacent to or in the vicinity of an aerodrome;
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Minister of Transport to:
1. use his authority under the Aeronautics Act to impose a moratorium on the development or expansion of aerodromes;
2. proceed with the establishment of measures to ensure the protection of the environment by obliging proponents to comply with environmental legislation when developing or expanding an aerodrome;
3. proceed with the establishment of rules obliging the proponents of aerodromes to respect municipal by laws and provincial legislation governing the use or development of land to develop or expand an aerodrome;
4. take social acceptability into consideration and consult closely with groups and citizens affected by the development or expansion of an aerodrome; and to require public consultations to be held by a neutral and independent third party.
