Stop or Move the Toronto Air Show

    1. Petition by

      Aaron Dawson

      Toronto, Canada

Every Labour Day Weekend the skies over Toronto are filled with the ear-splitting, window-rattling sounds of low-flying warplanes.

This is an unnecessary and unwarranted intrusion into the lives of young children, people who have experienced the horror of war, those who work nights or are ill, or anyone who simply wants to enjoy the last weekend of the summer.

Airshows over urban areas are a gratuitous source of noise and air pollution, a threat to public safety, and idealize war.

To:
Mayor Rob Ford, Mayor, City of Toronto
Stop or Move the Toronto Air Show

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      The airshow is traumatizing, loud, obnoxious, frightens children, animals, and people with PTSD. Stop it now!

      It's crazy loud and ruins the last long weekend in the city. AND, remember the Challenger??? If things go wrong, they go SUPER WRONG.

      I don't like noise or sickening displays of military force.

      The air show is an unhealthy glorification of war and retraumatizes Toronto citizens who have survived war or whose friends and families have been killed in airstrikes. It also terrifies pets and children who are right in their instinctive reactions of fear, something we adults should learn from. It's also loud to the point of derailing the normal enjoyment of activities, and disrupst the sleep patterns of people such as shift workers, the elderly, and babies. Stop the Air Show!

      It is unsettling. I find it hard to relax in my city with the sound of war planes overhead. Extremely unpleasant and getting away from the noise is not an option each labour day weekend!
