Canadian Air & Space Museum Served With Eviction Notice

Canadian Air & Space Museum was served an eviction notice from the landlord Parc Downsview Park on Tuesday September 20, 2011 and the locks on all the doors of the Museum were changed.

“The sudden and unexpected actions by Parc Downsview Park have been extremely damaging to the Canadian Air & Space Museum’s business and its Canada-wide reputation. Almost immediately, visitors asked if they had to leave the Museum, birthday parties, school and group tours were cancelled, facility rentals were put on hold, major donations that were many years in development stopped, and the Museum’s heritage partners scrambled to Downsview Park to remove their rare aircraft, aviation and space artifacts from the building in the great uncertainty.” -Robert A. Cohen Chief Executive Officer Canadian Air & Space Museum
