Markland Wood | Community Established in 1960

President's Update

Georgina Balascas

Hi Everyone,

Greeting Marklanders,
It may seem like déjà vu, but indeed I am back as the President of the MWHA. I was elected by the membership at our AGM which took place on October 30th.

I am very excited to be able to serve our wonderful community again.

I am also very pleased to announce that Anna Schaefer has also returned to the Board as the Vice-President. Anna has held many positions at the Board, including President and Past President.

I am looking forward to a very productive and busy year ahead.

We had an excellent turnout for the AGM. The program that evening was very important to our community as we heard what our elected officials are doing to defend Markland Wood against GTAA expansion and the use of runways that will impact negatively on the quality of life in our community. I would like to take this opportunity to thank MP Borys Wrzesnewskyj's Parliamentary Assistant Melissa Tica, our MPP, Yvan Baker and our Councillor for Ward 3 and Deputy Mayor, Stephen Holiday for coming and informing us of their efforts to put an end to the Airport's plans to expand.

MARKLANDER/WEBSITE report – Airport Committee Update

We are pleased to report that a great deal of work has been done over the summer to establish a strong and united coalition on behalf of more than 10 communities and 7 elected officials at the municipal, provincial and federal levels of government.

This new group will be countering recent operational changes proposed by the GTAA affecting the flight paths, operating hours and volume of traffic at Toronto Pearson International Airport. The coalition will emphasize concerns over safety to the passengers and to the community as this is the only topic (i. e. safety) that Transport Canada is willing to discuss.

With much effort, good cooperation and above all, our most appreciated political leadership, we have formed our coalition uniting the efforts of Markland Wood (MWHA), Rockwood Homeowners’ Association (RHA) and Fleetwood Homeowners Association (FHA) with Sherway Homeowners & Recreation Association (SHORA) and the Alderwood Residents Association (ARA).

The coalition is called the Community Alliance for Air Safety (CAAS) and was formed on August 29, 2017. We have also registered a website, Facebook site, Twitter account and a crowd funding site. All will be live in the coming week.
