  1. Fire seems to be the prerequisite to development far too often. consider the fire at the sanctuary Lofts in a historic church on Dufferin. the units had not been selling well. After the fire the developers have more cash and more options. Who advocates for these historic buildings. Read about Sanctuary Lofts: http://pvhs.info/?p=1267

  3. Greg, do you have anything on fires in Parkdale in particular and fires in historical buildings as a theme? You work is wonderful.
