Protecting 3100 Weston Rd
The City is currently evaluating the property of 3100 Weston Rd for a heritage designation. I will continue to advocate for the shrine and all elements of the site by communicating with various stakeholders including the dedicated advocates for the shrine, City Staff, the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority and the new owner.
