In the same (virtual) breath, the park announced they will soon be increasing their current capacities over the next few weeks, and have added more reservation spots for both the amusement park and Splash Works.
Based on the current provincial guidelines for amusement and water parks, Wonderland and Splash Works are able to operate at half their normal capacity indoors and at 75 % capacity outdoors along with other restrictions.
Single-day ticket holders who bought tickets for a Canada's Wonderland Only reservation before June 17, or purchased a ticket through an authorized reseller, can select an available visit date to the park. Those who haven't yet bought their tickets can snag a daily ticket through Wonderland's reservation page.
Season Pass holders will also be required to make a reservation prior to arriving at the park.
"Let's get Dundas Street renamed to honour the greatest Mayor in our city's history! Mayor Rob Ford!" reads the online petition.
"John Tory has a lot of tax payer cash to spend! Don't let him flush the money down the toilet. Let's honour Rob Ford who did so much good for this city!"
It continues on prompting potential signers to, "imagine being a tourist and visiting Rob Ford Square Imagine taking the train to Rob Ford Station Imagine meeting friends on Rob Ford Street," reads the petition.
Henry Dundas, whom the street is currently named after, played a role in delaying the abolition of the trans-Atlantic slave trade and in a news release Mayor John Tory said, "[...] Mr. Dundas had virtually no connection to Toronto and most importantly our strong commitment to equity, inclusion and reconciliation make this a unique and symbolically important change."
In 2022 the renaming process will begin with staff bringing forward name suggestions to an executive committee in Q2. The process will be led and overseen by a Community Advisory Committee made up of Black and Indigenous leaders who live and work on Dundas Street.
"This recommendation is the right decision in our continuous path to building a Toronto that is inclusive, equitable and reflects the values of its diverse members. We acknowledge that this is just the first of many steps to come, but this a genuine step in the right direction of who we are and what we can be. The names of our public streets, parks, and monuments are a reflection of our values as Torontonians. I look forward to the work to come and continuing to build a Toronto for all," said Mayor John Tory.
Residents of Northern Ontario are being warned of dangerous weather conditions that are moving into the province this afternoon and into the evening.
According to Environment Canada, a wave of severe thunderstorms will sweep into the areas of Atikokan, Shebandowan, Quetico Park, Kenora and more over the next few hours before becoming more widespread.
The thunderstorms are expected to bring large hail, strong winds and torrential rainfall.
"Some of these thunderstorms may become severe. Large hail is the main threat, although wind gusts up to 100 km/h cannot be ruled out," an excerpt from the warning reads.
