There was a recent meeting of stakeholders to the Ontario Place Revitalization Stakeholder Advisory Committee meeting. We truly appreciate the feedback and comments on the developed design of the urban park and waterfront trail. As I mentioned at the meeting, we will be sending you a draft meeting summary for your review and feedback. 
Our next SAC meeting will be held later this spring/summer and will provide a preview of the final park and trail design.
Also, we hope you will be able to join us at our upcoming public meeting on Wednesday, March 19th

Legal Input Sought
Is there a law in Ontario you think needs to be changed? The Law Commission of Ontario (LCO) reviews existing provincial laws to see whether they can be improved or repealed or whether circumstances require new laws. We also review government policy and practices.

The LCO welcomes law reform proposals from individuals and organizations, including academics, jurists, lawyers, community and advocacy groups, labour organizations, businesses and members of the public. We are accepting proposals until March 21, 2014. This is the second and final call for proposals for projects to begin later this year and to take us into what we hope will be our third mandate beginning in January 2017.
Please be aware that the LCO does not provide funding for others to undertake projects, but undertakes Board-approved projects in-house.
For more information about making a proposal, and to find out how the LCO selects projects, see our website. See the range of projects we have completed and are undertaking now. You can learn about our funders and supporters and more about the LCO at
