Petitioning Save Columbus Centre Committee

SAVE the Columbus Centre - SALVIAMO il Columbus Centre

The community centre known as the Columbus Centre, which was founded and established through the financial contributions of the Italian-Canadian community and the Ontario provincial government, has become the object of a tentative property speculation leading to its demolition and it being replaced by a smaller centre.

We believe that the Columbus Centre, which has been a social and cultural focal point of the Italian Canadian community as well as of other groups, must NOT be demolished and MUST remain as a centre for social, educational and cultural hub of Toronto and part of the cultural patrimony of the community at large and continue to benefit and enrich youth, adults and the elderly.

Il centro comunitario conosciuto come il Columbus Centre, finanziato e fondato con i contributi della comunità italo canadese e del governo provinciale dell'Ontario, è attualmente oggetto di un piano di demolizione e parziale ricostruzione in scala minore ed eventuale speculazione edilizia. 

Crediamo che il Columbus Centre, essenza del patrimonio culturale della comunità italo canadese, divenuto col tempo centro sociale e culturale di fondamentale importanza anche per altri gruppi, NON DEVE essere demolito ma DEVE continuare a svolgere la sua funzione di centro comunitario al fine di riunire e arricchire l'intera comunità.
