The land on the southwest corner of Bloor and Dufferin has long been the home to the high school Bloor Collegiate Institute. In 2016, this land was sold to a private corporation and the school was supposed to relocate to the location of the former public school Brockton Elementary, right behind Bloor Collegiate. The new building was supposed to be finished before the Bloor-Dufferin development started but due to a late start of the development on the land that Brockton was formerly on, BCI students are being forced to move to Central Technical School for one year. The details for this move were not clear to Bloor students who were given late notice. With this petition, we are trying to postpone the start of the development one more year. If we succeed with this, Bloor students would only have to face one move instead of the unnecessary double move. The proposed two moves would include one move to Central tech that would only last for one year forcing BCI students to adapt to a new environment with new students and then another move to the new school a year later. Moving so many times is disruptive to the lives of BCI students and harmful to their education. In conclusion, we find it very innapropriate that the interest of the developers is being put before the interest of students and the commmunity of Bloor-Dufferin.
