TANG meets with minister

The chair of the Toronto Airport Noise Group (TANG) says she’s encouraged by a meeting with Lisa Raitt, national minister of transportation, but she’s not going to wait forever for results.

Margaret Evans said Raitt acknowledged there was a problem, but did not commit to when the issues would be addressed.

The meeting at the offices of the Greater Toronto Airports Authority was also attended by Don Valley West MP John Carmichael, NAV Canada and four other community groups, as well as Renee Jacoby, of Leaside, another TANG member.

Evans says TANG will consider other options if there are no results from the meeting with Raitt.
