Protect Our First Parliament
The St. Lawrence neighbourhood is home to some of the most historically significant sites for Toronto and our country. The First Parliament site has been a cherished project advanced significantly over the years by the residents and Councillors of this neighbourhood.
The provincial government may not be focused on the best interests of this site as plans for the Ontario Line take shape.
Plan to attend the Town Hall on this issue being hosted by our Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam on Thursday, April 15 at 6 p.m. Special guests include representatives from the provincial arm responsible for building the Ontario Line - Metrolinx along with representatives from City Planning, CreateTO, and Transit Expansion departments.
This will be a Zoom videoconference and you will need to register to receive the link:
