“I really enjoyed snowmobiling in Huntsville recently and discovering Nature Unleashed, the newest exhibit at the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto. I invite families to join me on adventures in our province for March Break. By participating in activities our province has to offer, residents and visitors are supporting local communities and our economy.”
– Michael Chan
Minister of Tourism and Culture
