MT28, the Inquest and the Enquiry

Looking down at the ruins of Marine Terminal 28 there is something sad about the demolition of this former movie studio; for it produced some of Canada’s best film footage.

The timing and circumstances surrounding TEDCO’s selection of Priestly Demolition as the contractor is atrocious.

For the inquest started this week into the fatal accident that took place a few years ago when Priestly knocked a wall on to a neighboring building filled with students.

So, while one level of government pays to examines what went wrong on that tragic day, TEDCO is paying the very same company to take down another government-owned building, namely, Marine Terminal 28.

What I want to know is: When is someone going to call an inquiry into the business dealings of the Toronto Economic Development Corporation?
