Kingston Penitentiary will close on September 30, 2013.

The CN Tower is no longer owned by the People of Canada, the landmark is "non-federal owned". Several years ago there was an attempt to remove the words "Canada" and "Canadian" from the word mark "CN Tower", despite the fact that  taxpayers of this country paid for the construction of the tower, and the land was federally owned.
The Prison for Women in Kingston, Ontario was a Classified Heritage Building, the highest designation.
The Saint-Vincent-de-Paul Penitentiary in Laval, Quebec was also a National Historic Site of Canada.  Many Hollywood movies were filmed in the Saint-Vincent-de-Paul Pen, including the Universal movie "Death Race" and John Travolta's "Battlefield Earth":
