Pickering Airport back from the dead?

From the Pickering Airport Draft Plan Report

From the Pickering Airport Draft Plan Report [pdf]

John Barber wrote in the Globe and Mail today that the Pickering Airport, on hold for decades, may be resurrected in the next budget.

If we’re going to spend billions of dollars on useless endeavours that would have been fashionable decades ago, why not upgrade the Trans Canada Highway to a freeway, or build our own atomic bomb with home-grown technology?

It never ceases to amaze me how backwards the Tories are.

A while back, Spacing.ca took a tour of the Pickering Airport lands. One of the commenters suggested it would make a good National Park; it couldn’t be any worse (and it would certainly be cheaper) than a Mirabel-West.
