Asbestos flying everywhere ? I thought they had to watch that it wasn't airborne that stuff.... notice the big pile of rubble when driving by the other day.

What year was it constructed?

The manufacture of most asbestos containing materials was banned in Canada in 1979, but many non friable materials continued to be produced, stockpiles still exist and asbestos products can be found in buildings built into the early 1990s.

It makes sense that it opened around 1967 with a name like that. The design of the building seems as though it was from that era. It was a very basic low-budget building. You wouldn't see something like that built today.
