All set for the future: The time capsule is in place

By Marg Sheridan

Braving the cold weather and mid-day traffic, guests and staff gathered in front of the new Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning on Dec. 13 to mark a secret – a time capsule buried beneath a granite plaque.

SickKids President and CEO Mary Jo Haddad unveiled the plaque alongside Jasmin Singh from the Children’s Council, a group of patients who work together to make SickKids a better place.

The capsule is located close to the corner of Elm and Bay streets. Details of the contents will be revealed in 100 years or at some other appropriate time in the future when SickKids leaders decide to open the box. What we can say now is that it includes messages from SickKids leaders describing their vision for the Gilgan Centre, which opened Sept. 17, various inexpensive items of daily use, and a special contribution from the Children’s Council.
