On October 30 7pm, Metro Hall room 308, Citizens for a Healthy Toronto Waterfront will be holding presentations, discussions and a workshop on health impacts related to the proposed island airport expansion and introduction of jets. Together we will create a Health Manifesto for Toronto’s Waterfront to be given to Councillors and the Media.

The meeting format will be 30 minutes of key health and design professionals who will speak to health concerns, followed by Q&A with key speakers, and a half hour facilitated group workshop with attendees to create a Health Manifesto for Toronto’s Waterfront.

In the workshop, issues surrounding air, noise and water will be solicited from attendees, with respect to human, environmental and wildlife health. The resulting collaborative document, the Health Manifesto, will outline health solutions for Toronto’s waterfront. It will be submitted to Toronto City Council, to provide guidance from stakeholder involvement. The Health Manifesto will also be shared with the Media.
