Lacking heritage designation protection, four pre-confederation buildings that overlook Gore Park, may be lost if the City of Hamilton issues demolition permits this Wednesday, January 9, 2013. Only an emergency meeting of City Council can prevent it. Please email Hamilton City Council and demand that this action be stopped. For more background information, I have provided links to articles on the subject.
