Save Ontario Place Telethon with Ontario Place for All & West End Phoenix

Looking for something fun AND rewarding to do on December 3rd? Does an afternoon of music with the likes of Sara Harmer, Kevin Hearn, Rheostatics, Jason Collett, Ian Goodtimes and the Mercenaries, sound like a good time? Then mark your calendars for the Save Ontario Place Telethon.

More from West End Phoenix:

On Sunday, December 3rd, West End Phoenix and Ontario Place for All are joining forces once again to organize, educate and rally as we continue our fight for the future of Ontario Place!

The Ford Government intends to turn over a sizeable portion of park space, cutting down over 1500 trees and destroying the beloved waterfront park in favour of a massive, unwieldly and unnecessary mega spa. This project, massive in scope and destruction, will also leave Ontario taxpayers footing the bill, with subsidies that could reach up to $650 million.

We say NO! and we know a lot of you share this sentiment with us!

To that end, we are hosting a live telethon from noon until 8 PM at our space at 3 Bartlett Ave, with a revolving cast of favourites including Sarah Harmer, Kevin Hearn, Jason Collett, Rheostatics, and many more alongside Ian Goodtimes and the Mercenaries, plus arborists, ornithologists and architects on the value of preserving Ontario Place!
Drop in and send the Ford government a message:
NO PRIVATE SPA ON PUBLIC LAND, NO CUTTING DOWN TREES, NO 95 YEAR LEASE, AND NO 600 MILLION DOLLAR PLUS PARKING GARAGE!

This event will be FREE for anyone wishing to attend, and donations to Ontario Place for All are welcome. 

Neighbourhood tavern Wenona Lodge will be open as well for people to gather, with local vendors providing warm coffee and food throughout the day!

Drop in, say hello, learn more about what is happening, what you can do, and what the future of Ontario Place looks like for all of us!

minimal seating available for those in need.
