The future of York Memorial, which was destroyed in a fire in May of last year, was debated tonight by education trustees. The board is “going to start a process to look at enrollment and utilization” Chris Tonks, the trustee, told CityTV. CityTV says there are three possibilities:
- Keeping things as they are, with York Memorial independent and the nearby George Harvey continuing to operate well under capacity
- Merging the two schools into George Harvey’s building
- Constructing an all-new school
Yafet Tewelde, who ran to be York South–Weston’s MP, has created a petition to have the school rebuilt, among other requests.
