The Toronto Island airport expansion debate will be circling City Hall until late March.

City officials announced late Friday that Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly has scheduled a special executive committee meeting to deal with the issue on March 25.

It is the second time Kelly has delayed the debate of Porter Airlines’ push to expand and fly jets out of Billy Bishop City Centre Airport.

Councillors on the executive committee were supposed to debate the issue next Tuesday but city staff have requested that it be deferred until March to give them time to review new information from the Toronto Port Authority.
