More than a Mausoleum the Memorial stands as a testament to the triumphs of Thomas foster a local boy who went to the city and found his fortune. He was a MP & Mayor of Toronto and left several legacies. It is an unique artistic treasure hidden in the rural Uxbridge Country Side. The memorial is inspired by the Taj Mahal mixed with Byzantine Architecture, with solid bronze doors, stain glass windows hand painted and fired. The floors are rich coloured terrazzo and marble mosaics wrought in symbolic designs fashioned by some of the finest artisans of the time
