In November 2014 then Minister John Baird announced that The Ottawa Hospital (TOH) would be given 60 acres of the Central Experimental Farm (CEF) to build a new hospital.  A Coalition to Protect the CEF, a national Historic Site, was formed.  The federal government is now reconsidering options and the Coalition has launched a letter writing campaign.
