In June 2012, Canadians held their collective breath as rescuers dug through the rubble of the Elliot Lake mall for two women trapped beneath the collapsed roof. Their bodies would be pulled from the concrete five days later. What happened at the Algo Centre is about to be dissected at a public inquiry, but an investigation by Maclean's Senior Writer Michael Friscolanti reveals the disturbing backstory of a building that was literally doomed before it even existed. Weaved together with court documents, inspection reports, and scores of interviews with those who lived it, Friscolanti reveals how dreadful timing, dubious decisions and a collective case of wilful blindness ended in unthinkable tragedy.

    What a Shame!

    Great book... Tells the story perfectly! I used to have coffee in the food court back in the 80's and they hid it well from the public.
