COUNCILLOR KRISTYN WONG-TAM TRIES HARD TO SAVE DOWNTOWN INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX

These century-old heritage buildings at 153-185 Eastern Avenue in the West Don Lands are important parts of Canada’s industrial railway history.  Councillor Wong-Tram is trying to save them.The structures owned by the Province of Ontario, were recently being demolished without any community consultation nor a formal notice to the City of Toronto. Councillor Wong-Tam successfully stopped demolition until a formal hearing could be put into place. City Council adopted her motion for the City Solicitor to seek court enforcement of the Ontario Heritage Act, along with an additional Plan of Subdivision with the City. Negotiations are underway and updates will be posted at this address – kristynwongtam.ca/respectlocalplanning
