if you saw the restrictions they put on historic buildings and the financial burden on the owners sometimes burning to the ground is the only answer

We had one burn down on Dundas here in Oakville down the road from me a couple of years ago. The developer couldn't build on the site with it there and it had to be 'Preserved', with a gallon of gas and a match.

My son works steps from there, so I called him and he went by there about 11 am and it was still smoldering. He said that same building collaped partially last year and has just been sitting there dangerously ever since.
