Lear Demolition

The death fences are up…

…The metal siding has been stripped…

… and a trip around back shows that demolition is in full swing. More proof that our manufacturing jobs are gone and never coming back…

I suspect acres of parking to be in the future for this land. Funny how the Spitfires were able to play at Windsor arena for 30+ years in an urban setting, and people could always park. They’ve been in the new suburban location for a few months, and the letters to the editors complaining about parking haven’t stopped… heh.

Thanks for the heads up on the demo Nikki.
