Historic Maple Leaf Hotel to be Torn Down

Breaking news at the STC website.

Maple Leaf to be demolished

The hotel was slated to be torn down in Early July. I think their timing sucks... Seems like they could have waited an extra week.

Hey, Tracy can collect the bricks and rebuild it in the back of the STC.

It's too bad that they didn't do the demolition next week. Then Tracy could have simply had all the fans at fancon line up blocking all the streets, except for the one leading to the STC, forcing the dump trucks to bring everything to the STC.

Then the Leaf could have lovingly been reassembled by the STC staff.

So sad to see this, but we all knew it was going to be gone someday.

I haven't felt as sad about a building being torn down since they tore my old high school down 5 years ago. I had a ton of memories associated with that buidling. I'm sure Shania has a few with the Leaf too, as do we now.

Channel 3 news in Timmins covered the Maple Leaf demolition story today. Included in the clip is footage of the actual demolition shot by Chris (Timmins4ever), as well as an interview with Frank Roch (director of Timmins Tourism), and some footage of fans visiting the leaf during fancon 2.

The video will be available here till noon tomorrow.

Thank-you Chris for lending us that excellent footage!!!! My apologies -- i DID credit you on-screen....and I credited you by voice as well (I edited all that in). But when I watched our finished newscast, I noticed our editor had no supers (tech-talk for writing on the screen) throughout the whole story. As well, part of my story had been edited. I'll ask him 'what the heck happened' when I get in today.

Again, thank-you....it was terrific footage!!

Your pal.........Corinna

My mistake.....a technical glitch....so Chris' name didn't appear on-screen.....but watching it over again, I DID credit him by name in the story.
Thanks again Chris.........the story will be up until 6:00 tonight.
