    RBC Excerpt re: Toronto Island Airport

    Hey, Blurts. I've noticed that when you don't like, or can't intelligently respond to a response, you just go ahead and start a new thread. What up wit dat?

    Here's the excerpt from the RBC report, which basically reiterates what I posted yesterday.....

    "Approval likely in our view. At the end of the day, we do believe that
    Porter will secure approval to utilize the CSeries at Billy Bishop. The CSeries
    aircraft has a significantly lower noise footprint as compared to any other
    production jet, and is very similar to the Q400 turboprop currently being
    operated at the airport. We also note that while the main runway will
    need to be lengthen 168m at each end (appendix 1), the marine exclusion
    zone will likely not have to be increased according to Porter management.
    Coupled with a strong economic case (over 1,000 new jobs to be added to
    Porter), and the fact that the CSeries will have a much lower take-off and
    landing frequency due to the longer flight routes, we see little reason for
    an economically focused government to not approve Porter's plan.
    Opens the door for more. If Porter does receive approval to use the
    CSeries at Billy Bishop for new routes (appendix 2), we believe that Air
    Canada could potentially follow suit. Management at Air Canada has
    already expressed interest in the CSeries, and with the tunnel linking the
    mainland to the island airport expected to drive new slot openings from
    the current 202, we believe it would give Air Canada an economic reason
    to add the CSeries to its current fleet."
