Long-term reprieve and protection of historical site at 65 Carl Hall Road. sign now

On Tuesday September 20 2011 the Canadian Air & Space Museum was handed a notice of eviction by its landlords, the Crown Corporation Parc Downsview Park. The locks were immediately changed and the Museum was essentially closed with no notice. The building, which has been recognized as a Federal Heritage Building since May 14th 1992, is planned to be demolished and replaced with a four pad arena.

The Canadian Air & Space Museum is a non-profit organization that has been proud to host and showcase Canada's rich aviation history. It is not government funded and credits its creation and upkeep to hundreds of volunteers and thousands of volunteer hours. In addition to opening its doors to visitors, tours and special events, the Museum is part of the Toronto Board of Education's Grade 6 science and Grade 10 history curriculums -- hosting thousands of students each year.

The building at 65 Carl Hall Road, along with the artifacts it currently holds, needs to be protected. This petition asks that the building be granted a long-term reprieve and the protection of the Federal Government and that the Museum be granted the opportunity to continue its work in preserving the memory of Canada's place in aviation and aerospace history.
