According to Mike Sullivan, our MP, George Brown College has applied for money to build a Weston campus at the new GO Station at Weston and Lawrence.
George Brown has long been interested in a campus in our neighbourhood, but had flirted with other locations and kept their plans quite quiet. In 2010, Paul Bedford, Toronto’s former chief planner, floated the idea, and since then, there had been occasional rumours that the college would build a campus at 33 King. Those plans seemed to fade when COSTI opened a branch at that address.
Now Mike Sullivan says in a letter to Glen Murray, Ontario’s Minister of Training, College and Universities, that George Brown has applied for funding to build the new campus; he also expresses his concern that the lead time could be extremely long—”perhaps as long as ten years”. He is asking the province for clarification.
