It was one of the longest courtships in the history of cultural philanthropy, but at last Hal Jackman has stepped forward as a major donor to Toronto's new opera house.
Jackman — a former president of the Canadian Opera Company board — has pledged $5 million for the Four Seasons Centre for the Arts.
In recognition of his gift, the patrons' lounge (which stretches along Queen St.) will bear his name."
