Markland Wood | Community Established in 1960

President's Update


Hi everyone,

Well, the GTAA - what a past month. Quiet it has not been. As you have followed through our MWHA website postings, & our BLASTS, a major groundswell of anger has arisen, not just in Markland, but throughout West Etobicoke and Mississauga about the effects of the on-going runway maintenance at Pearson. Your MWHA has tried to sort out fact from rumour in terms of what is actually going on. This all culminated with the meeting of the Community Environment & Noise Advisory Committee (CENAC) on April 19. The anger and demands for cessation of the constant noise were palpable, and rightly so. We subsequently met with our MP Borys Wrzenewskyj at his constituency office at 577 Burnhamthorpe Rd (at The West Mall) to demand that he take more leadership to stop any plans by the GTAA to increase flights on the north-south runways. We also demanded that he do a lot more to pressure his Liberal Government leadership to bring the GTAA airport to rein and to restore Federal Government oversight of GTAA planning and operations. Our MP Borys Wrzenewskyj, our MPP Yvan Baker, our Councillor Steven Holyday and other political representatives of areas affected have been meeting behind the scenes and are planning a GTTA community meeting at Silverthorn Collegiate later in May. GTAA and CENAC officials will be there to grill. Come and do so. Residents of Markland with other communities have formed such proactive Facebook pages as Neighbours Against The Airplane Noise, and we support their efforts to share information and encourage your participation.

Reminder: The Annual Markland Wood (World's Largest) Garage Sale - Saturday May 27, 2017!
