Which only leaves me with 2 questions -
 Why did we waste 4-years and lots of City of Toronto dollars doing this stupid OMB-Kabuki Performance... other than to appease the Local Councillor and his NIMBY cranks..?

Demolition has stopped, but I expect water interruptions to nearby buildings sometime today.
