Toronto City Council to remember Poland’s President and other key leaders whose lives were lost in a tragic plane crash
Tomorrow at the start of the Toronto City Council meeting Mayor David Miller and members of City Council will remember Poland’s late President Lech Kaczynski and that country’s government, military and religious leaders who died in a tragic plane crash at Smolensk, Russia on April 10, 2010.

Poland’s Consul General Marek Ciesielczuk will be in attendance for the remembrance.

Canada has long shared a historic bond with Poland and this relationship is especially important to the City of Toronto.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Toronto's ties with Warsaw and Torontonians join with people around the world to mourn the loss of President Kaczynski and so many significant leaders of the Polish nation.

Date: Tomorrow, Thursday, April 15
Time: 9:30 a.m.
Location: Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W., Council Chamber
