First off....not meaning to open the can of worms again but Florence I happen to be one of the youth that attends the church where Jason is one of the pastors and greatly respect him and his leadership.

Now.... I think Ron, if there were minimum building standards and regular, mandatory inspections on buildings we wouldn't have seen the building collapse in the core last week. I'm going to look into it a bit more, see what I can find. Having worked downtown for a short while, I can't recall how many times I said, "wow that's a cool looking building... I wish I could buy it and fix it up." I'm a civil engineering technologist so looking at buildings is what I do, but how in heck are organizations being allowed to purchase buildings and then let them fall apart? Why not put some kind of legislation in place that says, once you purchase a building, after some period of time there has to be marked improvement on the property?
