Alright now, this cant be just happenstance and merely a coincidence. The moment we hear a peep about "preservation" is when we get a fire?

There needs to be a police investigation on this one because i'm sniffing some suspicion here.

The church still looks in tact from the exterior after the fire:

TIL, this church was used to film scenes of the TV series, The Handmaid's Tale.

Other commentary including Matlow in this article:

It could have been dismantled and rebuilt elsewhere, perhaps for future film shoots and for remote Zoom Sunday services with only the minister and organist present just like this church in Unionville:

Any update on this ?
Members typically race to be the first to post when there is news, so no need to bump the thread with the question. (In fact, other members end up disappointed that there isn't news when they see a new post.)

I was at Wychwood and St. Clair several weeks ago and noticed orange construction fencing around trees in front of the property.

Council deferred voting on designating the Church as a heritage building so I don't know what the status of that is.
