Petition to the House of Commons

Whereas:
  • Despite opposition from the residents of Mascouche and Terrebonne and despite the mandate given by the Prime Minister that all decisions are to be made in the public interest, the Minister of Transport has granted a private group the right to develop a new aerodrome located partly in Mascouche and partly in Terrebonne, requiring the clearcutting of 19 hectares;
  • The land in question, protected by Quebec legislation, is within the green belt (woodlots and wetlands) of the Montreal Metropolitan Community;
  • The aerodrome is less than 8 km from a dump site, in violation of federal regulations;
  • The aerodrome is not in response to any need expressed by the community;
  • The community will bear the consequences of all the harmful environmental impacts, noise pollution, security and costs, without any significant economic benefit;
  • The National Assembly has decided unanimously to urge the federal government to reconsider its decision to construct this aerodrome and to comply with Quebec legislation and local decisions; and
  • Similar situations occur repeatedly, including in St-Cuthbert and Neuville.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Quebec,, call upon the Government of Canada to comply with Quebec legislation, the choices of Quebeckers and reconsider its decision in order to prevent the construction of the aerodrome; to amend federal legislation so that any proposed aerodrome in Quebec be subject to Quebec’s environmental impact assessment and review process; and to make the consultation process transparent and independent of promoters.
