Downsview Park – Make your vote count
As you know, we are now in the middle of Canada’s 42nd Federal election. This fall, you will be asked to cast your ballot and choose someone who will represent Downsview’s interests at the Federal level. As you know the sale and development of Downsview Park is one of our most important issues.

The Federal Government has not delivered on its repeated promise to “hold [the Park] in perpetuity and in trust primarily as a unique urban recreational green space for the enjoyment of future generations.” Instead it began parceling off the land and selling each to the highest bidding developer bringing in up to 30,000 new residents and 10,000 new apartment units to our neighbourhood.

I, along side many of you, have been standing up for the Downsview Lands for almost 20 years. Now is the time to make our voices heard. I implore you, as Federal Candidates come to your door, ask them whether they will fight to keep our Park land. Anything but an unequivocal YES should cause you to think.

If Ottawa will not listen to us, we will take our voices to the ballot box.

Ottawa refuses to surrender the Old Port to Montreal – Downsview Park is not the only property the Federal Government is cashing out on.
Read this (translated) article from La Presse in Montreal to understand how Downsview Park isn’t the only land in Canada being used as a cash cow.
