Thank you to everyone who dedicated their time and energy to help save the Columbus Centre from redevelopment. Your efforts were essential to protecting the heart of Toronto's Italian-Canadian community, a beloved green urban oasis, and an important communicty facility for Eglinton-Lawrence, and we couldn't have done it without you. The voice of the community has been heard and respected because of your hard work and dedication.
