    Large highschool in the process of being gutted. Two floors and a basement, a gym, auditorium, all the things you'd expect to find in an abandoned school.

    They carted off at least a dozen skips full of asbestos. So there might be some left over for those who worry and cry about it.

    Laurentian High School opened in 1958. Over time, Laurentian expanded twice, bringing its capacity to around 1200 students. By 2004, the student population at Laurentian had fallen to 510 and the school was closed.

    In the years before its demolition, the school was used as a training ground for Ottawa's Tactical unit (SWAT). The school also served as the set of a television series, Family Biz, which began filming on May 5, 2008. A total of 26 30-minute episodes were filmed. The series was co-produced by three organizations: Muse Entertainment (a Montreal film company), Summit Crescent Productions and Breakout Films. The series debuted in Spring of 2009 on YTV.

    The school was demolished in 2009 and is being converted to retail space. There is now a WalMart superstore at the site.
