    right behind the doors that they ripped out. the floor on the other side of the wall they took out was gone already. my uncle was in the food court when this happened. it was so surreal watching them tear into the wall, that corner is where people gathered on their breaks or to have coffee outside.

    Remember this ? I wonder if it was the same builder ?

    The two heaviest 24-hour snowfalls in recent memory were on consecutive days in December 1995, including 48.1 cm Dec. 9, followed by 44.2 cm Dec. 10. That was part of a storm system burying the city under 151 cm of snow over eight days, Dec. 7-14, leading to the collapse of a portion of the Station Mall roof Dec. 14.

    city hall officials call 911 on reporter asking for information. at the end she says "this is pretty indicative of how things are running around here" i'd have to agree. they are all trying to cover for each other now. they can not be allowed to do so.

    It was brought to my attention today that there was a recent inspection(prior to failure) and it passed. Can anyone confirm this?

    papers have been brought forward showing that the roof was evaluated and the company that did the evaluation suggested a complete overhaul be done with $1 million dollar price tag and the suggested work was not done. a reporter went into city hall today asking for the reports from the inspections that were done because they should be available through the freedom of information act as they are public document. the reaction of city employees to the request: calling 911. yeah, city of elliot lake, that does not look suspicious at all!

    I'm afraid it might be little more than procedural changes accompanied by punitive damages. Unless I read the above articles incorrectly, there were no (currently known) orders by the ministry to initiate repairs after several inspections. It would appear little time was spent inspecting the structural integrity of the affected areas.

    Any idea whether they are going to tear the whole mall down? Are they going to remove the roof and repair it?

    They are still determining that. No decision yet.

    A recent article published by Global News revealed that the Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario engineering firm of M.R. Wright and Associates Co. Ltd. issued a report stating that, despite evidence of rust and water damage, the inspected Algo Centre Mall roof and parking deck remained structurally sound

    So it appears they did focus on the structural but completely failed in their job. I wonder if the liability falls back on Wright and Associates?
