Yeah, I can see the Mirabel connection there, but you must remember that this is for Ontario, not Quebec, so likelihood is slim.

As far as housing etc in the area, VAncouver is running into the same old crap: people move to property RIGHT BESIDE the airport, or directly underneath the flight pat, then yowl about the noise. . I lived right on Sea Island within 100yds of the main runway, back in the days when ALL jets were direct (DC8s, 707s, etc), no bypass stuff (747s) for a long time. The pluses for me were that the place was cheap, and that it was RIGHT BESIDE the runway (wife wasn't all that impressed, she left long before I did!). In those days, all conversation stopped for up to 2min when an 8 took off on a damp night. So what? People talk too much anyway! :P

Add to that that the MoT expropriated all the expensive houses on the north side of the island "for expansion": it was decades before the first bulldozers dug dirt! So don't get too excited ... yet...
