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.
