- To raise awareness of the need to
support Haiti's earthquake survivors, Canada's National Tower will be
lit in red and blue, the colours of the flag of Haiti, beginning at
sunset each night from January 15-22, 2010.
The CN Tower will also raise awareness of relief efforts on site
by providing visitors with opportunities to donate to the Canadian
Red Cross. Visitors can add a donation at the time of their ticket
purchase or use donation boxes on site. All donations will be
forwarded to the Red Cross.
Canada Lands Company CLC Limited (CLC), owner of the CN Tower,
will also make a donation to the Canadian Red Cross to help meet the
immediate needs of the people of Haiti. "The images and news reports
from Haiti are devastating, and like all Canadians, we as a company
felt the need to reach out and show our support," said Mark Laroche,
President and CEO of CLC.
Defining the Toronto skyline at a height of 553.33m (1,815ft., 5
in.) the CN Tower is Canada's National Tower, an engineering Wonder
of the Modern World, the World's Tallest Tower and Toronto's must see
attraction visited by over 1.5 million people each year.
CLC is a federal Crown corporation that optimizes the financial
and community value obtained from surplus strategic properties no
longer required by the Government of Canada. The company is
self-financing and implements innovative property solutions to
create strong and competitive communities wherever it operates.
