Mr. J. A. Jerome (Parliamentary Secretary to President of the Privy Council):

In so far

as the Department of National Defence is concerned: 1. Discussions have been held between North York and the Department of National Defence relative to the continuing operation of the Downsview Aerodrome. No decision has been taken on the future level or nature of civilian operation.

2. No.

In so far as the Department of Transport is concerned:

3. (a) Downsview Aerodrome can be licensed when and if it becomes a civil facility provided the present zoning protection is maintained. However, because of the geographical situation of Downsview as regards noise pollution, and because of other aviation facilities close by (Toronto International, Toronto Island and Buttonville Airports) the role of Downsview is foreseen as providing a limited facility for general aviation serving industry, (b) Air Traffic Control services can be provided should traffic conditions generated by

Questions

the limited aviation activity envisaged at the airport warrant it at that time.

4. This will depend on the circumstances which exist when and if the aerodrome becomes a civil facility.

5. The degree to which the operation of Downsview Aerodrome will assist operations in the Toronto area will depend on the ultimate use which is made of it as a civil facility. However, bearing in mind its limited role, it is expected that the impact of the use of Downsview in the overall aviation plan for the Toronto area will be minimal.
