At least three homes have been demolished in Weston to make way for the Air Rail Link and GO Train expansion. The homes, which were on King and Church Streets, were purchased after a controversial and callous letter was sent to the owners late last year.
Metrolinx has made the best of a bad situation, touting that the demolition of the homes has raised $8400 for Habitat For Humanity through the donation of building materials to the ReStore program.
Several trees were also cut down as part of the demolition, and a piling rig has been moved into position. Both sites now appear to house construction materials and equipment.
