BLOGexclusive-- Bridge Company Home Damaged By Fire
One of the homes owned by the Ambassador Bridge Company on Indian Road was damaged by a fire the other night. Ironically, it happened after DRIC announced the location for the new bridge and plaza.
Was it a mere accident and coincidence or was it a deliberate act of arson? Was someone trying to deliver a message to the Company? After all, wasn't the Company identified as the "enemy" of the City?
The cause of the fire is under investigation along with the extent of the damage.
There is no doubt now that the fun and games at City Hall have got to stop and permission to demolish these homes has to be granted immediately. It is not only these homes that are at risk. As I mentioned in a previous BLOG, DRIC also is buying homes that I am told are abandoned.
The problem that the Bridge Company has is that the City Planner has already said at Council that if they brought an application to demolish the homes there would be opposition for the demolition by Administration for at least several more months until such time as the CIP Report was completed.
It will be interesting to see what the next step will be.
