Queen's Park's Canada Day Party Is Back On But Doug Ford Isn't Paying For It - 2019-06-29
A week ago, Ontarians were outraged to hear that Premier Doug Ford and his party had cancelled the official the Canada Day Queen's Park celebrations. The annual party at Ontario's official legislative home was a long-running tradition dating over 50 years. When the Conservatives cancelled the party, citing low-attendance, it was a shock for many but there's finally good news. The official Queen's Park party has been saved.
On Friday, June 28, just days before Canada Day on July 1, it was announced that a picnic party would be held on the lawn of Queen's Park in Toronto to celebrate our national day. However, this celebration is not being hosted by Doug Ford. Instead, a Liberal MPP is actually stepping up to put on the official celebrations.
