9 1

Ontario Place will remain a place for the people after Tourism Minister Michael Coteau announced the province's plan to revitalize the aging facilities Thursday morning.

The $100-million revitalization plan includes green spaces and a water park as well as a waterfront trail.  

There will be a canal district which will include a waterfront promenade complete with restaurants and stores.  There will be common areas for community events and festivals and live music options will be expanded.

Concerts will continue to rock on the stage of the Molson Amphitheatre and the cinesphere and pods will be preserved.  

The first phase of the revitalization of Ontario Place will involve building an urban park and waterfront trail.

    I support Rob Ford's plan to make Ontario Place into a casino, as that would help to slow down organized crime and illegal drugs in Toronto.

      @Rosalyn I support spending one hundred million dollars to build a park.

      @rosalawn I support the Liberal party to pay for all the revitalization out of their own pockets as part retribution for the billion dollars they wasted on the gas plants.

    Does the spendthrift Liberal gov. understand that citizens expect it to find a way to make the site pay for itself in short order without burdening the public either at tax time or at the gate? Do they have a financial plan in place?

      @sari Of course they don't. The closest thing the Liberals have to a financial plan for ANYTHING is "Tax. Spend. Lie. Repeat."

    Contract will only go to Liberal friends and, either it will cost 3X as much OR if they truly spend $ 100 Million it would have only cost about $ 33 Million if private sector controlled it.
