When I started working as the Pickering municipal reporter in 2011, I was confused when I attended a council meeting and heard the term “airport lands” several times.
Were they talking about Pearson? Oshawa? Was there a flight school somewhere in the city I didn’t know about?
But then I received an e-mail from Gabrielle Untermann, secretary of Land over Landings, introducing herself and the group, and opening my eyes to the ongoing airport issue in northern Pickering.
