It has been several days now since a stop demolition order was issued preventing the continued demolition of the building that once was the Astor Cinema, since mandatory by-laws were breached.
I passed there on Saturday and observed that still no barricade or fence had been erected around the remains of the building, despite a directive being issued. I further observed two persons sitting in the rubble.
What will it take for the owners to act, and what are the authorities doing about the disregard of a legitimate order?
In the meantime the public continues to traverse the area.
