Recently, a staff member at C/S Info Centre received a pretty awesome piece of information from a Bulletin subscriber. Here's what the subscriber had to say:

Now through November 30, 2017 general admission to Toronto's historic museums is free! You can visit 9 of the city's museums at no charge courtesy of Mackenzie Investments, as they celebrate their 50th anniversary.
