Ottawa City Council has voted to allow this inappropriate addition to the Château Laurier to proceed.

IT'S NOT OVER!

Heritage Ottawa and Friends of the Château Laurier remain committed to preventing a design which denigrates rather than enhances this venerable historic place.

Heritage Ottawa has retained legal counsel and with support of the Friends, launched a SAVE THE CHÂTEAU LAURIER fundraising campaign toward the legal costs of fighting this incompatible and inappropriate addition.
