    While it’s not free….there are 2 Whitespot locations open for 4 or so hours on Xmas day. I believe Richmond Ctr and Kingsway? All proceeds and staff wages etc go to charity! I don’t know all the details but if anyone needs a pre-Christmas dinner burger…..

    Oops! Previous comment is on the wrong post :). It is interesting to see how much is open on Christmas. The aquarium would be great to visit.
