Ontario Place For All
An Important Announcement from "Ontario Place For All":
This week, the Province announced plans that could transform Ontario Place into a privatized sports, entertainment, and retail complex, with no access to the ordinary public.
If you share our belief that Ontario Place must be kept, not as a commercial operation, but as a civic destination that is accessible to all, we hope you will join us for an evening with John H. Alschuler, an internationally respected expert on parks with New York-based HR&A Advisors.
John will talk about why such civic assets as Ontario Place must be kept public. Ontario Place for All hopes to engage HR&A Advisors to produce a full report that shows Ontario Place produces more generalized economic benefit if it is left as a park.
The fundraiser for Ontario Place for All will be:
Place: The Roof Top of 401 Richmond Street West
Date: Monday, July 8th
Time: 5:30 – 8:00 PM
You can purchase tickets for the event here. Park People will issue a tax receipt for the charitable eligible gift amount. If you cannot attend, Ontario Place for All would gratefully accept your tax deductible contributions here. You can also learn more about their work to save Ontario Place.
