Like so many other people, both young and old alike, I’ve been following the planning of the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada for ten years. It was designed by B+H Architects , and is poised at the bottom of the CN Tower. It has taken PLC Construction Canada Inc. two years to build the aquarium and it will soon be opened to the public.
There are so many captivating stories and interesting activities involved in the opening of a major public aquarium that this makes it a great time to blog about it. In the past I’ve been involved in the formal opening of two major public facilities in Toronto, the ROM and the CN Tower, and I recall the excitement and drama surrounding them.
It is an exciting time for Toronto. The aquarium has the potential to distract from the mammoth public image fiasco facing Toronto courtesy of our Mayor Ford.
