If Stephen Harper And the Conservatives Want A Legacy That Even I Will Praise Them For .... FIX THIS!

OTTAWA — "Canada’s national archives building is so prone to leaks that it sprang another one last month just as workers were cleaning up the mess from a flood days earlier. The showcase building near Parliament Hill was given a second soaking June 1 when a cold-water valve in a women’s washroom failed, internal documents show.

The leak triggered a fire alarm, and flooded two corridors as well as an area where books are stacked, though no volumes were damaged because a tarp had been thrown over them by workers cleaning up a May 20 flood.

The first flood, caused by a broken pipe in a washroom, also set off a fire alarm and damaged more than 400 books in the basement. Some of them required freeze-drying but nothing was lost.

Although Library and Archives Canada staff played down the May 20 flood, and never issued a release about the June 1 incident, leaks have become a way of life at the nondescript structure, opened in 1967 just west of Parliament Hill.

In the last 20 years, there have been at least 83 soakings at the facility, with causes ranging from burst pipes and overflowing toilets to faulty roofing, documents obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act show."

The Halifax Chronicle-Herald

The bloody Liberals had 12 years to fix this mess before they were thrown out in 2006 - here is the Conservatives chance to try and bring a bit of salvation to themselves ....

The only way they're fixing it is if they plan on selling it.
