Alright, I get that the building is collapsing, however the developer knew well in advance that this chruch was on the heritage register, and I have no doubt that he knew there were massive strucutural issues with the building. This is why he was given a massive discount on the sale of the building, going from the 1.5 million that it was worth went down to $610,000.

They didn't inherit this problem, these guys knew full well what they were getting into, and they can certainly do better then what they've provided thus far.

This is one of the buildings worth saving and no quarter being offered on it. The building is not only old, it boasts unique architecture that isn't duplicated anywhere in the city if not the country, it is made of materials that are unlikely to ever been used in construction again using methods that make duplicating it next to impossible, it sits next to similarly architecurally unique buildings and most of all, it's designated by the province as such.
