The PC government has promised that York Memorial Collegiate will be restored.
Faisal Hassan, our MPP, asked the PCs whether they would commit to rebuilding York Memorial. Lisa Thompson replied
Absolutely, we’re committed to working with the school board to make sure that that community hub, if you will, is absolutely restored.
Coming back from Skills Ontario last Tuesday or Wednesday morning, when it was on fire again, we actually drove by and it’s a heartbreak, what has happened to that community. I understand it’s under investigation. We certainly will be working with the school board, and I look forward to working with you to make sure we get it right.
Last week, City Council also committed to rebuilding the school after the fire.
There had been rumblings, here and elsewhere, that the fire would be a good reason to consolidate schools and develop the land.
