Canada's Porter Airlines has gained attention for chic flight attendant uniforms, delicious food and close proximity to Toronto, but plans to expand at Toronto Island Airport have drawn criticism and debate. The plan would see the airport filling parts of Lake Ontario to build runway space. According to Adam Vaughan, a city counselor, "The enlargement, in New York terms, would be like proposing to land jets in Central Park," "The Toronto Islands are an emerald, one of the most beautiful and revered parks in the city. The issue is, Are we going to pave half a kilometer of Lake Ontario for one man’s private interest?"
