Toronto Pearson airport officials cancelled an Etobicoke public workshop about its future growth plans with just hours’ notice on Wednesday, June 28.
Officials with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA), which operates Toronto Pearson International Airport, said 61 people preregistered to attend the public forum.
