New hotel at CNE to tell story of early Toronto

An ASI project featured in The Globe & Mail on November 26, 2012: “A new hotel to be built on the grounds of the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto will give visitors a rare glimpse of the city’s military history by incorporating the archeological remains of an old barracks long buried under a parking lot.”
