TORONTO, March 2 /CNW/ - Representatives of a large group of parishioners
will present Mayor David Miller and City Council a 1,400 signature petition
9:00 a.m. on Monday March 3rd at Toronto City Hall.
The group fears a development proposal coming before City Hall today
could cause permanent harm to the heritage church, its 4,300 parishioners and
the college campus. They are asking City Council to send the application back
The parish was not consulted on this mega development. "This process has
been a real eye-opener as to how development politics takes place in this
City," said Father Paul McGill, pastor of St. Basil's Parish.
"All citizens should be concerned when our representatives try to divide
and conquer as opposed to building bridges into the community."
