Don’t sell Ontario Place
Re Bill would allow sale of Ontario Place lands,
Nov. 1 Ontario Place, a provincial icon, is a unique property with outstanding design, on prime waterfront real estate. It’s decline is the result of neglect and poor marketing. With inventive programming, revitalization and promotion as a year-round destination, it can be viable.
This jewel of a resource cannot be vapourized to oblivion because of the expediency of dealing with a crisis in mismanagement. It belongs to the people of Ontario and government has a responsibility to restore its lustre as a source of pride for all.
Judith Tenenbaum, King City If the Ontario Liberals are so adamant about not selling or otherwise disposing of any Ontario Place lands, the simple solution is to remove that section of the proposed Burden Reduction Act that allows the future sale, leasing or other disposition of Ontario Place lands. Greg Sheehan, Mississauga The Wynne government may not be planning to sell Ontario Place lands but if that clause stays in the upcoming bill any future government could decide to sell it.
The bill has to be changed. Barbara McNamara, Toronto
