The Ontario Line LIVE - April 15, 2021 (Thorncliffe Park, Flemingdon Park, and Science Centre)

On April 15, 2021, Metrolinx hosted a presentation and live Q&A focused on Thorncliffe Park, Flemingdon Park, Science Centre, and the maintenance and storage facility with over 500 people in attendance. During the virtual event, we answered the top-voted written questions from the event page. Participants were particularly concerned about how the maintenance and storage facility location will impact the mosque building and local businesses and community organizations. We've shared written answers to the top questions we received on our FAQ page. In the future, we'll post responses to questions for all virtual open houses directly on the event registration pages. Find all current and past even registration pages here.

We also heard a lot of concern about the timing and format of the event. Our goal with this event and others taking place this month was to share information with as many people as possible, but we know that there are limitations to the virtual format, and we are working to make improvements for future events. We also know the timing during Ramadan was not ideal, and we are sorry for that. We wanted to give the community the opportunity to ask questions as soon as possible after the announcement of the location of the maintenance and storage facility. We’re looking forward to holding many more meetings in future, including in other languages.

For those who weren’t able to join us, you’ll find the video recording below.
