I have watched this particular story with great interest. -IF- the buildings are beyond repair, which would be up to engineers to decide, I wouldn't have any substantial problem with them coming down.

Having said that, why do they have to come down now? Why, with no concrete plans for imminent replacement, is Blanchard insisting on demolition immediately? They are stable and of no danger to the public and were inhabited until just weeks ago. Is there a particular reason he wants to leave a gargantuan hole in an otherwise well preserved block and further damage Hamilton's delicate psyche regarding its downtown?

At least with the school board headquarters debacle, MAC moved in and immediately started construction on the new health campus.
