It was dangerous then, when the school was open. But as you should know, asbestos becomes much more dangerous when disturbed than when undisturbed due to the particles getting into the air.

Like I've said before, while in high school in Dundas, my school had these lovely 'asbestos tents' in the halls where they were tarps running floor to ceiling while they were remediating the asbestos problem there. These tents were up for months and regularly were opened, pulled down, or ripped. It was, I guess, an occupational hazard at the time. It's the same there.

And yes, what I was getting at regarding remediation is that you can be more careless in the holes/walls removed for remediation as you don't have to worry aobut coivering it up, making it look nice, etc.
