Premier Doug Ford's government is gearing up to select the successful bidder who will transform Ontario Place into a "year-round" destination.

The submission period closed in late September, but there's still little public information about what the iconic waterfront site could become in the years ahead — prompting one city councillor to warn about the threat of a "backroom deal."

"We are going to bring Ontario Place back to life and once again make it a spectacular destination attracting local and international visitors year-round," said Derek Rowland, a spokesperson for Tourism, Culture and Sport Minister Lisa MacLeod, in a statement.
