The Ontario Liberal Party will host a Canada Day picnic celebration on the grounds of the provincial legislature on Monday after the Progressive Conservative government cancelled the 52-year-old event.

The so-called "People's Picnic," spearheaded by Toronto MPP Mitzie Hunter, will take place at Queen's Park from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

"Nobody cancels Canada Day," Hunter said. "It's a tradition that's been around for 52 years. I've talked to people who attended as children, who are now bringing their children to this event. Why would you take that away when it has meaning for people in terms of their national pride, their national unity and being Canadian?"
