It is pretty easy to sit here after the fact and bemoan the loss of this building. Where was everyone who cares 10 years ago. It has been sitting empty for that long. The developer who owns it presently has only had it for about 1 year. There are lots of other "heritage" buildings in our city. If they are important to the populace then raise some money and start buying them up and restore them.

It is everyone's favourite hobby to sit around and spend other peoples money. The owner should do this and restore that and add another one over there.

What I find just as disturbing if not more so is that Costco in Ancaster is tearing down a building that is 20 years old, pretty young for a commercial building and replacing it with a bigger building right beside it. Not one peep about this. Nobody complains nobody raises an objection. I realize that the building has no historic value whatsoever but what a waste of resources. Yet no one started a campaign to change things and there was a realistic chance for that to happen. Costco is probably fairly sensitive to the opinion of not only it's customers but the community which hosts it's store at large.

I am sure that there are many other places that the populace can get involved to instigate change, to stop the waste and destruction. If that is what you wish to do.
