The Kinsmen Centre’s fate needed years of political debate to resolve, but it took just hours for workers from Murray Mills Excavating and Trucking to level the former community centre and elementary school at 656 Lakeshore Rd. Council voted last July to sell the public lands to allow a five-home subdivision on Lakeshore, but that decision has been appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board.
