3. REPORT/ITEMS

Additional Item

Our Commitment to the Environment (Video)

The video titled "Our Commitment to the Environment" outlined the GTAAís commitment to the environment in all aspects of GTAA operations, which enabled the GTAA to be awarded the International Standards Organization (ISO) 14001 designation. The designation is awarded to those organizations for achieving standards in:

    1. Environmental Policy: Define company goals;
    2. Planning: Consider impacts, objectives and targets for their Environmental Measurement Systems (EMS):
    3. Implementation and Operation: Day-to-day use of the EMS;
    4. Checking and Monitoring: Monitoring and correct the EMS;
    5. Management Review: Improve and refine the EMS.

    1. Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) Board of Directors Quarterly Update (Oral)
    2. GTAA Board members presented information regarding Operating Activities; Issuing Revenue Bonds; Website Update; Ground Transportation Issues; Consolidation of Air Canada and Canadian Airlines, and the Status of Development at Lester B. Pearson International Airport (LBPIA).

      Mr. Wilson presented figures relating to passengers, cargo and movements. Passenger travel for 1999 was 27.8 million; Cargo shipments was 360,000 tonnes; and the movement (departure/landings) of aircraft was measured at 427,315. Also, in June and July 2000, the GTAA issued $ 575 million in Revenue Bonds.

      The GTAA web site (www.gtaa.com) has been upgraded to include a Flight Information Data System (FIDS). FIDS provides visitors to the GTAA and passengers of airlines with information regarding the arrival and departure of airlines, and is updated every 10 minutes.

      Mr. Dennis provided a guided tour via photos of the re-development stages of the Lester B. Pearson International Airport (LBPIA), and advised that the target date for the opening of Terminal 1-new (T-new) is October 2003. T-new will be operational, however, due to continued construction, will not be fully functional. In addition, GTAA staff advised members that approximately $80 million has been budgeted for the re-development Highway 409, and that the yearly ground lease for LBPIA is $117 million.

      Mayor Seglins requested Board Members to review signage for ground transportation services. The board members undertook direction to request the GTAA Transportation Committee to review signage concerns.

      The Committee was advised that the GTAA is currently working with the City of Mississauga to issue 35 new airport taxi licences to those persons/companies that currently do not operate a taxi service to LBPIA.

    3. Steve Shaw, Vice President, Corporate Affairs & Communications, Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) regarding Land Use Plan for Lester B. Pearson International Airport (LBPIA)
    4. City of Toronto regarding a Draft Accord Between the City of Toronto and the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA)

Councillor Saito identified two statements contained within the Draft City of Toronto accord with the GTAA which was adopted by the City of Toronto on August 1 to 4, 2000 which require clarification. Firstly, the location of LBPIA is proportionately greater in the City of Mississauga than that of the City of Toronto, as identified on page 3 of the draft accord. Secondly, clause 6.3(e) GTAA Lead Role, identifies that the GTAA "Öconsult with the City to ensure that ambience of LBPIA (e.g. programming, art, signage, staff training) provides a suitable welcome statement for "Toronto".

It was understood that the airport serves all communities within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), however, recognition of the community for which LBPIA resides (City of Mississauga) should also be clearly identified and promoted.

Additional Item

Noise Management Committee Ė City of Toronto Department of Health Report on Noise Pollution

Councillor Saito advised members that a recent City of Toronto Department of Health report on noise, which was addressed at the September 13, 2000 Noise Management Committee meeting recommended that a sub-committee be established by the Greater Toronto Services Board (GTSB) to deal with noise. Councillor Saito advised members that the current Noise Management Committee is working well, and that the establishment of a sub-committee of the GTSB would be a duplication of effort.

It was noted that the minutes of the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) did not include the discussion regarding the re-location of the airport. The Regional Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) was requested to meet with the Mississauga City Manager regarding issues of developing airport lands.
