*FRIENDS OF THE EMPRESS*

It has come to the attention of the Empress Cultural Centre board that Mayor
…Michael Applebaum plans to pass a motion to take back the Empress at
tomorrow night’s Borough Council Meeting, Monday, August 15th.

This is outrageous and disappointing given the fact that, only a few weeks
ago, after months of work, the ECC presented a viable working plan (with credible developers) to Applebaum.

*The ECC board was not advised of Applebaums intention and only found out
indirectly of this motion. *

* *

This latest development is not surprising given Applebaum’s long history of
lack of support for the project. It is disturbing given that a viable
collaborative project was presented.

It clearly shows a lack of good faith. It raises questions of transparency
and respect for community engagement.

You have followed and supported the Empress project – devoted your time and energy towards its restoration as a community asset.

*YOUR PRESENCE AT TOMORROW NIGHTS BOROUGH COUNCIL MEETING IS IMPORTANT!*

We need to show Applebaum that although it is the sleepy summer THE
COMMUNITY IS NOT ASLEEP.

Look forward to seeing you tomorrow night:

*6:15pm to register questions *

*7:00pm Meeting opens with public question period*

*Cummings Centre*

5151 Cote St. Catherine (opposite the Segal Centre)

*SEE YOU THERE!!*
