This is our Mall----It was 3 stories high, with parking area on the roof--
It collapsed last June---
2 people were killed---Amazing there weren't more people killed!-
So, now it is finally coming down----
The new one is going to go up beside it-----but--we live on the Precambrian Sheild in Northern Ontario---
That means, lotza rock, to blast away--
They say, the new Mall will be up and running by next Christmas---
The Library was in the Mall----We now have no library----
People used to see each other as we shopped , in the Mall---We don't have that anymore---We have no ""focus"" area , in the town now---
There is a lot of anger over that Mall collapsing--and--a great deal of questions----to the Mall owner who let it get in such a state of dissrepair----and to the city---Why was this building not checked , for safety, by a city official??
An inquiery begins in March , which will , hopefully , give us all some answers.
This has taught me, to listen to your inner voice--ALWAYS---to that little voice inside you, who used to say, "'Don't park on the Mall roof""----I stopped doing that a year before it collapsed---
But I ran in and out of that mall, daily, even tho, that voice was shouting inside of me, telling me, it wasn't safe---I trusted the city to keep me safe----even tho I knew better!!!
--kinda like that voice , that tells me now to not overeat--that it's bad for me----
So-------It's Sunday-----and we have sunshine-----(no mall--LOL)----but--We do Spark---LOL---
