"Because if a new airport deal isn’t put together, it makes little sense to spend on airport upgrades over the next decade. And the airport needs some work. Runways may need to be extended to meet Transport Canada safety guidelines. A preclearance area, so U.S.-bound passengers can go through customs before boarding, has been long in the works, but it’s not clear who’s paying, if anyone. And in March, Ports Toronto announced it was looking for potential investors in the airport — but any investment seems a waste if the airport isn’t going to be around after 2033."
