On November 22, ACO held a press event at Queen’s Park in Toronto to publicize the damage that Schedule 6 of Bill 23 will wreak on Ontario Heritage. Speaking were Diane Chin, Chair of ACO; William Greaves, Ontario Place for All; Michael McClelland, Principal at ERA Architects; and Past ACO President Catherine Nasmith reading a statement from former Toronto Mayor John Sewell.
A letter from our President,
Please share with your Branch membership , the press conference video attached here. Please ask them to watch it and afterwards write or phone their MPP’s TODAY. This Bill is in third reading. Call their MPP’s even if their MPP is not Conservative as they can raise questions in the House. Heritage has never so seriously been under attack.
They can also submit comments to the EWRO Registry by Nov. 24.
Chair, Board of Directors
