How much does it cost to maintain the old Groves hospital?
What is the cost of heating and cooling? How much to tear it down? How much is the land worth? Have other government bodies turned it down?
Perhaps it would be best to sell it for development and build new on land already owned. Perhaps it could be sold with the condition that a portion be set aside for long term care or other need.
But then with the provincial government privatizing existing public facilities, maybe that is not such a good idea.
