CFN – With talks about the expansion of the Cornwall Regional Airport failing again maybe it’s time to start to consider some new ideas and think outside of the box?
The airport, located in South Glengarry clearly does not serve the goals and economic development needs of the City of Cornwall if it is hoped to attract industry and business to the area.
For nearly a decade now our MP has failed to deliver expansion while local politicians fiddle their thumbs and raise municipal taxes.
Perhaps the solution would be to look for a whole new parcel of land and create a new airport within Cornwall boundaries? The City recently purchased 270 acres to expand the Industrial Park; why not a few more for an airport?
According to reports the current airport expects the City to cough up 85% of the costs of upgrading the runway and building new facilities; why not just up the budget and put the whole project on City land?
