Hey Eric - tell the world how mad you are

Hi Er,
I'm sorry to hear about your condo building. The news shows all had footage of it but I didn't even consider that it would be your building that went up in flames. I'll post the newspaper photo that you sent and when you write me a more detailed email I'll post it as a guest blog, if you want. Maybe this building site has used up all the bad luck and you will have a ton of happy years living there once they re-build. Thank goodness you weren't in harm's way when this happened. Keep me posted on what the developer tells you about re-building.

I can't believe this! What a terrible thing! I just watched the video and saw the photo gallery on the Edmonton Sun's site.

The police say it was arson. But it supposedly started at 5am, so I kind of doubt it would be teenagers. Maybe the building contractor or some random freak?

I agree with you Chris. I hope they catch the arsonist and put him/them in jail.

Eric was told by the builder that they will rebuild, rather than cancelling the project. Good news, as prices have gone up quite a bit since he committed to this building.

I'm glad that they are going to re-build. Eric has been the most patient condo purchaser that I have ever heard of. I can't wait to see the progress once it starts construction again, Er.
