We the residents of Willowdale demand that the City of Toronto and the Province of Ontario permanently preserve the green treed parklands at 175 Cummer Avenue, Toronto. 

On March 10, 2021, with no public process or even proper advance notice, the City of Toronto made a surprise decision that if implemented will permanently eliminate parklands which have existed since before Toronto was settled.  

These parklands are cherished and provide solace and tranquility to over 600 seniors home residents of Willowdale Manor/Cummer Lodge, together with hundreds more staff and their families and local area residents.

The City of Toronto has provided no  pre-consultation of any kind about the selection of sites for the City's modular homes project. The community has been given no material information about how this valuable parkland site was chosen in priority to hundreds  of other available City owned locations in Toronto. The actions of the City of Toronto are contrary to the needs and interests of the local community, and have been taken without pre-consultation, without disclosure and without any  democratic and legal due process.   

We demand the City’s decision be cancelled.  We further demand the Province take such steps as are necessary to permanently preserve  the Willowdale Manor parklands at 175 Cummer Avenue Toronto against any future City of Toronto attempts to destroy or redevelop such parklands.
