Hamilton Artist Update 19: James Street Baptist Church

Special thanks to the blogger of NotMyTypeWriter who flagged to my attention the start of the external demolition of the James Street Baptist Church.  She writes a great blog and I encourage everyone to take look at her postings.

Always amazed by the number of people who stop and comment on heritage when I do my filming.  It is too bad that I never have the camera on when they start to talk.

As I mention in the video, my principle concern with the partial demolition of the James Street Baptist Church is the process and the role the Heritage Permit Review Committee played.  I emailed the City Manager several weeks ago to ask him to look into the decision-making process.

At the rate that the demolition is going, I would suspect that most of the building will be demolished by the end of June. So, if you want to see the James Street Baptist Church you better do it now.
