‘Blatant disregard’ for heritage

Re: Alma College demolition application.
I, as well as many others, am in awe of the municipal council of the City of St. Thomas and their lack of decisive action to make sure this beautiful building is protected. Are they rubbing their hands together, thinking of the new condominiums that will be created on this property and the taxes the city will realize with a new development?

St. Thomas will become like every other “new and remodeled” community, without an identity and without a past. It is a blatant disregard of all peoples who sacrificed and toiled to build the city and give it the character it should be proud of today.
