New school for Hochelaga-Maisonneuve

The CSDM plans to raze and rebuild the École Baril, on rue Adam in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, which in these photos is clearly boarded up and long disused.

I have to wonder what kind of neglect led to buildings – quite a handsome, century-old school building in this case – becoming so riddled with mould that the only thing to do is nuke them from orbit and start again from scratch.
