It is not yet known whether  Porter Airlines’ plan to expand their fleet into jets will be cleared for takeoff.

At a town hall meeting held September 19 at the Direct Energy Centre, emotions ran high as a divided crowd weighed arguments and viewpoints. Everyone wanted their opinions heard.

An executive panel was present at the event, including project manager Chris Dunn.
