Is the runway extension happening?
It's arguable that both the runway expansion AND the end of the prohibition on turbofan-powered aircraft will happen in due course. The majority of Toronto residents have always polled in favour of YTZ expansion. A pro-development mayor (Doug Ford?) and a new Federal Conservative government could make it happen within 10 years.
I would tend to agree with both of the above, Toronto just needs more vision, unfortunately the waterfront all the way to Port Credit is chock full of NIMBY's. Orders maybe defered for now but will come. Porter needs to figure out how to utilize these aircraft soon by utilizing new longer routes and possibly look for a secondary hub.
