More millions to fix city hall

Barely a month ago it was revealed that the total bill to renovate the city hall building had reached $188.1 million and just now TVA says the new total is $211 million and it won’t be reopening till 2024. Item says they’re adding a museum, a café, a family room and a salle polyvalente.

I’ve noticed before this tendency for mission creep in public projects, but I’ve grumbled about it before, and it won’t change anything.

Minor update: Le Devoir’s Jeanne Corriveau tweeted some photos from the building, showing the work being done, likewise from CBC.
