Community Consultation for 2445 Lake Shore Blvd W To Be Rescheduled

I want to thank everyone who took time out of their schedule to discuss the lease renewal for 2445 Lake Shore Blvd W at Mimico Library on Monday, March 21st. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and unfortunate error that resulted in the meeting having to be rescheduled.

We have one of the best public library systems in the world, and I don't believe this is a reflection of the great work library staff do everyday. However, many people stood out in the cold waiting for the library to open, which is completely unacceptable. I have spoken to the Deputy City Manager and Library Board Chair to determine what went wrong Monday evening, and we are working to resolve the matter.

I will defer the consideration of this report at Community Council until we have had held a community consultation. We will reschedule the consultation as soon as possible, and you will receive notice either by mail, email, my website, eNews, or social media channels.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, and once again I apologize on behalf of the City of Toronto.
