“[We’re] keeping up with the world and all the new buildings. Also, we’ve been working on making the tower more accessible. It’s 42 years old so some of our accessibilities aren’t the best,” said Neil Jones, chief operating officer of the tower.
It’s essential that CN Tower’s renovation and upgrades tie into our commitment to accessibility,” said John McBain, president and CEO of Canada Lands Company, the owner and operator of the CN Tower said in a statement.
