We have scored some significant wins! Public pressure combined with court action has forced the Province to reconsider the hasty demolition of the site.
As we write this, the demolition crew are preparing to wrap up their activity and leave the site completely until the Province decides how to proceed. This could take months. But it is important to remember that the Province still holds all the cards: they own the site, they have a Minister's Zoning Order that gives them the legal right to develop it as they wish.
Moreover, back in September they already made a deal to sell the site to a developer, who (based on the parameters of the MZO) plans to put three very tall condo towers on it.
Since public attention has played a crucial role in this issue, it is critical that we keep things simmering in the weeks and months leading up to their decision.
