Toronto claims to be a world class city – but how could it be..when it has turned its back on the stars?

Over a decade ago the Royal Ontario Museum closed what was the Toronto McLaughlin Planetarium – over money issues. They sold off the stellarium, the Zeiss star projector and abandoned–no they NEGLECTED the population of Toronto.

The building has stood vacant – with a few exceptions – for most of this millennium. Now the geniuses that run the ROM who spent all their money on the crystal monstrosity that grows out of the side of the legacy ROM building like some kind of malignant tumor – want to see the Toronto Planetarium site sold for condo development.


The shame is not just on the ROM but on Toronto itself.
