you have to be kidding me. They're proposing to demolish that building?? They tried to demolish Stinson but public outcry saved it. Perhaps it's time for the same thing to happen again. For all the talk on this forum recently of needing affordable living spaces and artists spaces, why would we even think of demolishing this building? What is the board planning on doing with the site? A parking lot?

Everything on RTH ties in together. 2 decades of being a satellite city of somewhere else has led to little investment in the old city. We're dragging on LRT, allowing sports teams to derail brownfield waterfront renewal and generally focusing our efforts on the periphery of town. I'm guessing this school in Toronto or Montreal would be re-purposed and would be beautiful. Much like Stinson will be. A sad day if we do lose another great building like this.
