Psst...Wanna buy several stained glass windows?

stainedglassbrockville.jpgDriving through towns in Eastern Ontario there's any number of historic churches dotting the landscape. One of those is the 137-year-old Trinity Anglican Church in Brockville. The building was de-consecrated in 2011 because of low attentance, and parishioners formed a new congregation with members of another church in town. But now the developers who bought the property are trying one last time to find a buyer for the church itself -- or else it will be demolished. 

 

Brian Eagles is the President of Northern Art Glass, and he wants to find a new home for the church's stain glass windows. He joined us to explain why.
