The Toronto Port Authority welcomes Mr. Roger Tassé’s report. His extensive review and final report provide important insight and context to the TPA’s mandate, operations and decisions relating to the cancellation of the fixed link to the Island Airport

In the course of conducting his review Mr. Tassé had unprecedented access to information, including first hand input from a wide variety of individuals and organizations. This provided him with a unique opportunity to assess and comment on all matters within the mandate given to him by the Minister of Transport.

The Board of Directors is pleased with Mr. Tassé’s findings and will carefully consider his thoughtful conclusions and recommendations.
