How much to remove all the mould?

I love the article in the Trib on this "open house" to show what a deal the Wilson farmhouse es.
A "Technical Type" claims that the house's "bones" are good!
What utter crap,
Ignore the paint hanging down, the leaking roof, black mold, the damage to the rubble foundation,and a few other things and it shows why Farbridge got rid of the Kate Quarrie newsletter. The press are more amenable to praising the shape this building is in.
And the CITY is going to do some repairs Costing from $1,000 to $4,000!!! WOW, FANTASTIC -Watch those offers come pouring in! The only problem is that the return address will be on the west side of Delhi St. This "diamond in the rough" can be yours for only $200,000 down and a half a mi;;ion in repairs. City of Guelph Estimate - better double it just to be on the safe side!

On another note the estimate for the skateboard park just INCREASED by $300,000.
Is there no one at City Hall who can figure these things out properly? And renovations to the Police Station LEAPED from $13.7 millions to $30 millions!!
WE ARE DOOMED! But not nearly as much as the free spending 8 on Council!
What is that date again - Oct 27 2014!
