just to keep the facts on the table. Lister is not in a "hopelessly decayed state". Multiple engineering/architectural firms inspected the building and found that not only is it fixable, but suggested that it is so structurally sound that if we were to tear it down and build a new building, that new building would run it's course and need major retrofitting before a refurbished Lister. Photos of ripped wallpaper and broken windows might sell newspapers, but don't mean a thing factually. Lister is now being saved, not because some bleeding hearts intervened, but because common sense intervened. Now THAT is front-page news in Hamilton.
