Save the Gore

Did you know that Durand, Central, Stinson, Kirkendall Neighbourhood Association and Beasley Neighbourhood Association have all formally opposed the proposed demolitions on Gore Park? So have Environment Hamilton, the ACO Hamilton Branch and Architectural Conservancy Ontario!

Now we need to FILL COUNCIL CHAMBERS ON TUESDAY JANUARY 17th! It is very important that people come out to show Council that this is an issue which concerns their constituents.

Meeting starts at 9:30. We hope this issue will be bumped up the Agenda for around 10am but that is yet to be determined. Check our Facebook page and Twitter account for updates.

It’s not too late to write to your Councillor or register to speak to the Committee along with many of us.

Thanks for your support!
