Franco-Ontarian Solidarity Concert / Spectacle de la solidarité franco-ontarienne
The Montfort Hospital Foundation invites the community to a concert celebrating Franco-Ontarian Solidarity, on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at 7:30 p.m., at The Arena at TD Place.
“I will never forget the Historic Rally on March 22, 1997 where more than 10,000 people gathered at Lansdowne Park to save the Montfort Hospital. This is a day that will forever be anchored in the Franco-Ontarian history,” said Gisèle Lalonde, President at the time of the SOS Montfort Movement.
“The Historic Rally paved the way to 20 years of great achievements and 20 years of excellence in healthcare. Twenty years later, Montfort has become Ontario’s Francophone Academic Hospital and what better time to celebrate together,” declared Dr. Bernard Leduc, President & CEO of the Montfort Hospital.
Several Franco-Ontarian artists will recreate the successes that lit up the crowd in 1997, amongst those: Damien Robitaille, Robert Paquette, Chuck Labelle, Jean-Marc Lalonde, Serge Monette, Jean-Marc Lalonde, Yao and Moonfruits.
Tickets for this free concert can be obtained online, by phone at 613.748.4920 or 613.232.6797 or in person at The Box Office at TD Place.
Your ticket entitles you to a free OC Transpo bus ride three hours before and three hours after the performance.
