Oh man,
How history repeats itself. One would have thought with tearing down of the Birks building and Old City Hall, the citizens and political leaders of the day would save the remaining buildings that line the Gore. There was a time when city councillors resigned en masse when the Gore was first re-developed in the middle of the 1900s (I think, hoping the history checkers here can verify) that saw the removal of many old growth trees and some of the heritage buildings.
I would hoped that would have been only a one-time occurence, after all the public outcry at that time. The only glimmer of hope I see is that if those buildings go...they'll tear down Jackson Square while they are at it!
