Stephen Griggs, Member of the Board of Directors, Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) provided an outline of new programs that will be, or are currently offered at Pearson International Airport (PIA) including a volunteer program to assist arriving passengers, free baggage carts, improved retail, food and beverage service, a fitness centre, and technology advancements.

Lorrie McKee, Acting Vice President, Stakeholder Relations and Communications, GTAA, highlighted the economic impact of PIA on the greater Region, as well as plans to develop PIA as a Regional Mobility Hub.

The delegates recognized the need for better transit options for passengers and employees noting that any improvements must fit within the complex site and operating airport.

Councillor Palleschi commended the introduction of a volunteer program at PIA, noting that similar programs in other countries help to relieve the stress of flying.

In response to a question from Councillor Crombie, Stephen Griggs stated that one of the GTAA's mandate is to help with regional transportation corridors connecting to PIA including some funding, however, all levels of government need to participate to maximize PIA as a transportation hub.

Councillor Fonseca noted that the Community Environment and Noise Advisory Committee (CENAC) provides a forum for residents to get answers related to airport operations.

Councillor Foley requested that Regional Councillors be provided with information related to CENAC that could be shared with residents.

Councillor McCallion stated that GTAA taxes are paid based on the number of passengers transported as opposed to business tax assessment. She noted that PIA transports large amounts of cargo which ultimately has an impact on road infrastructure and she suggested that the GTAA should pay taxes based on assessment.

Councillor Saito suggested that the issue of revenues received from PIA and the impact of cargo should be considered by the Intergovernmental Relations Advisory Committee (IRAC) for the development of a business plan to demonstrate the need for additional funds to be used for transportation corridors and a state of good repair.

Councillor Saito noted that Councillors receive many calls from residents regarding airport noise and that Members of Parliament should be the main point of contact for resident concerns.
