CN Tower Supports Haiti Disaster Relief Efforts

TORONTO, Jan. 15 /CNW/ - To raise awareness of the need to support Haiti's earthquake survivors, Canada's National Tower will be lit in red and blue, the colours of the flag of Haiti, beginning at sunset each night from January 15-22, 2010.

The CN Tower will also raise awareness of relief efforts on site by providing visitors with opportunities to donate to the Canadian Red Cross. Visitors can add a donation at the time of their ticket purchase or use donation boxes on site. All donations will be forwarded to the Red Cross.

Canada Lands Company CLC Limited (CLC), owner of the CN Tower, will also make a donation to the Canadian Red Cross to help meet the immediate needs of the people of Haiti. "The images and news reports from Haiti are devastating, and like all Canadians, we as a company felt the need to reach out and show our support," said Mark Laroche, President and CEO of CLC.
