Death Fences

A good sign that time’s up for a building comes, once you see the death fences pop up. They appeared magically around the Bank of Montreal Building on Wednesday afternoon. I kept watch on Thursday to see what would happen, and by the end of the day the heavy machinery had started to arrive on site. I imagine that today’s the day she bites the dust…

Someone has written on the building in what appears to be chalk…

“Please don’t demo”
“Save Windsor’s History”
“RIP”

Good too see that others are angry enough about the needless demolition to protest in their own way…
