However, an attorney representing an ad hoc organization to save the course says the stakes actually represent a positive step for people who want the course to remain.
Ricardo Hrtschan says they are there because an environmental survey is taking place as part of the end-of-lease terms.
“If any work started we would immediately request an injunction,” he said.

The environmental work, he believes, actually bolsters his legal position that the corporation that manages Trudeau Airport is subject to local and provincial law.
Dorval learned almost one year ago that the airport is ending its lease with the city and planning to expand onto the course land.
