Dilapidated is an understatement. Reckon the owner is bankrupt or unable to pay so into the old "can't get blood from a turnip" routine. Still has to be taken care of and Government should remove it and ensure that the owner pays up before any other licenses or permits are issued to conduct business in this province. Maybe seize any assets that company/individual has.

Why couldn't they do this earlier? Oh yeah, right..... August is when they do the polls.

IF the province has to demolish this building due to public safety, so be it. The costs of the demolition should be charged to the owners of the facility. Then, if they fail to pay the bill, it can be passed over to a collection agency, who will recoupe the costs in whatever means necessary. Make these people responsible for their actions! It's time for our provincial government to stop being pushovers with issues like this.

Lee will :
ok this company that actually operated this structure should "foot" the demolition,as we know and see that they has "no regard" to environmental and eyesore,the should be "forced" to foot the bill and not let them off the HOOK!!! I feel this is just another bill for the taxpayers unreal!!!

Jim of st anth :
good news for the folks in englee....however needs to go a step further and stick the owners with the cost of demolition after the government is finished....time for fly be nighters who reaped the benefits to pay the cost of doing business.

Ok...let the demolition of every old building in the province begin. We will all pay for them instead of who should be paying.

Newfie Bill :
I guess the owners got what they wanted. The people of the Province will end up paying for this and the expenses will not be recovered. The owners should be charged under the Act, but we know that won't happen.
