Plans considered for Fort York. The Toronto Star, October 4, 1958.

After further study, the route of the Gardiner was switched to the north side of the CNE. This placed Fort York in the path of the expressway, and led to protests throughout 1958 from groups ranging from historical societies to the Toronto Women’s Progressive Conservative Association. The tide of voices against proposals to move the fort led to one of Gardiner’s few losses when it came to the expressway. Historicist covered the full story of how Fort York was saved.
