Ontario Place is a critical part of our City. Last month, the Provincial Government’s plans for Ontario Place became clearer. Tourism Minister Michael Tibollo announced a process that will turn almost all of Ontario Place over to the private sector. The Provincial process puts at risk the Cinesphere, the recently completed Trillium Park and the pods.
To ensure our city and our residents have a say in its future, I moved a successful motion to strike a special City of Toronto Ontario Place sub-committee. A subcommittee of Toronto and East York Community Council, members of the public are welcome to attend, submit communications, and register to speak to share their views publicly.
The first meeting of the Subcommittee of Ontario Place will be on Tuesday March 5th at 5:30pm, City Hall, Committee Room 1. We are encouraging members of the public to attend, and to register to speak to share your views on Ontario Place with us. We will also be considering a detailed report from City staff on the history and status of Ontario Place, and more.

I hope to see you there,
