No one needs to convince Pickering investors of anything, all that is needed for the airport to happen is that the GTAA gets out of the way.
What’s the timeline for investment and when should we expect the introduction of a consortium to develop Pickering?
I remain skeptical that the only thing stopping Pickering is some lobbying from the GTAA. If that’s true, the Eastern GTA has some really shitty and incompetent politicians.
Since the GTAA clearly intends to fight, the question now is how big are the cojones on our Minister of Transport? Can he take on Ontarios biggest monopoly and survive the political fallout? Or will he kick the building infrastructure crisis down the road for the next guy, and for the next guy... like they did for years on the oil transportation/ pipeline crisis in Alberta, until the oil sector collapsed ?
I am not one for conspiracy theories. Do you have evidence to show that Pickering is being stymied by the MoT because he is being swayed by lobbying from the GTAA? That’s quite the assertion.
Also, Pickering has been on the books forever. How come pro-Pickering proponents didn’t have any success with the business friendly Conservatives before this government?
Something tells me, it’s not really the GTAA holding you back....
And Alberta’s oil sector has collapsed? Really? Mark, if you keep up the hyperbole and hysterics, people are really going to question your honesty, sincerity and competence. Just a reminder that this forum is public. I would assume any of your potential investors are also taking a peek.
