If you drove past Hastings and Renfrew on Saturday, you hopefully saw our signs. Thank you to all the residents who came out to support our STAND for Hastings Park, as we demand public governance of what should be a public park!
Some photos of the gathering were kindly posted by the Hastings Park Conservancy on their Facebook, which they have also linked to our event on Facebook.
