From the beginning, Ontario Place was about the future
from Toronto Star
It was meant to be a place for the people. But Ontario Place was also conceived with a bit of hubris in mind. It also was built without building permits. The idea was first pitched by then Progressive Conservative premier John Robarts in August 1968 as a new exhibition space for the province — an expanded Canadian National Exhibition — in response to Expo 67, which had just concluded to great acclaim for Montreal, which was rivalling Toronto as a cultural jewel.
