Debate is happening right now. Apparently this is the straw that broke the camel's back - I think Farr is feeling like he got played, so he's pushing for Council to stop giving Blanchard any leeway.

edit: I just read the latest update - you were right, they voted to stop Blanchard. The brakes are on for Gore buildings. McHattie is tweeting that they've approved $1.1M grant for Blanchard to do restoration instead of demo. I expect we'll be hearing a lot of moaning that $1.1M is a drop in the bucket for buildings like this, and that's probably true, but I think Blanchard might just have to realize that he made his bed.

That said, it's hard to be optimistic. Blanchard will find a way to drag his feet and leave the buildings to rot into their foundations.
