Please see the below media release from the City of Burlington.

Burlington, Ont. –May 31, 2019—  Burlington’s Burlassic Park roared with excitement as over 2000 people came out to cheer on the Toronto Raptors and celebrate the historic win of Game 1 of the NBA Finals. The City of Burlington wants to continue to share Canada’s moment with Burlington residents and is all in to host free public viewings for every NBA Finals game.

The following are the dates, times and locations for Burlassic Park NBA Finals public viewing parties:
Game 2 Sunday, June 2: Civic Square 7:30 p.m.
Game 3 Wednesday, June 5: Central Park Bandshell 8:30 p.m.
Game 4 Friday, June 7: Location to be determined next week. 8:30 p.m.
Games 5, 6 and 7 Civic Square (if needed and the Raptors do not take the series in 4 games)

Games 5 and 6 public viewing parties would start at 8:30 p.m. and Game 7 at 7:30 p.m.

“The Raptors are on track and Burlington is stepping up, making Burlassic Park the spot to be for the rest of the NBA finals. Let’s show the Raps how much we support them with an even bigger crowd for Game 2 and through the rest of the series.” — Councillor Rory Nisan

The City of Burlington will be hosting game viewings rain or shine.  As the games are likely to go beyond 11 p.m., City Council has granted a Noise Bylaw exemption for all days.

MY TAKE:

I’m so proud of our city for coming together to cheer on Canada’s Team! The pride this is building in our community is indescribable. Fan support across the country undoubtedly helped propel them to victory in Game 1. We’ll keep cheering together until they take the championship!

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
