Standard bureaucratize – but the outcome of those situations when the school board decides it no longer needs a school and declare it surplus – it is open to others to buy the property and put it to good use.

It will be a much different place when it reopens in – well no one is really certain when it will open.

When the HDSB decided to close two of its seven high schools that started a process that had Burlington buying the former Bateman High School and turning it into a community centre that will also have tenants.

Parents demonstrated against the closing of their school – it made no difference.

    Good news, so the tax payer will be receiving dividend earnings generated from the sale of assets they have purchased and maintained? Or the more likely scenario, they will be asked to pay for the assets that they already paid for all over again.
