  That is a great find. I had always wondered how old the building was....

  By fireproof they probably meant equiped with a few fire hydrants and full of asbestos...

  Well, asbestos is (or make that was) mined in Quebec.... Isn't the Olympic stadium full of asbestos-laced concrete? It's only in the last decade or so that there has been a reall concern about asbestos fibres--hell, it was used in everything. The house I'm living in has asbestos siding on it. When any siding salesmen come along, I just point to the astestos siding and they can't get out of here fast enough.

  I was just thinking, my grandmother would have been in her mid-20s when this place was built. I'll bet she watched it going up....

  yes the big owe is all asbestos (filler) concrete, hence the plastic sealent applied to nearly all surfaces, when i worked there they were always testing the asbestos levels in the air, asbestos brake pads are still available in quebec, just got to know where to look

  Concordia used to have a department ot 2 in the highrise first on yer right up from the Tim Horton's on Guy street. I visited there in 86 and while the building was undergoing some renovations people in those offices were expressing grave concern for asbestos. I don't remember when "sick building syndrome" became mainstream but they were at least talking about it then.
