New Democrat MPP Michael Mantha wants confidential records pulled from the Algo Centre Mall before it's demolished.
His constituency office was in the Elliot Lake mall, where a roof collapsed more than five months ago.The Algo Centre Mall in Elliot Lake still sits in ruins as the community waits on the mall to be demolished. MPP Michael Mantha wants to make sure confidential documents are first retrieved, however. The mall's roof partially collapsed June 23, killing two people and injuring dozens of others.

A demolition company is currently in talks with the city to obtain a demolition permit. But before that permit is granted, Mantha said he wants to meet with the company to discuss the handling of important records — especially public health records.
"That [should] really not land up in a landfill site,” he said.
“It should be returned because you don't want to see that stuff land where there might be potential for a breach of confidentiality."
Mantha said he's also asked to meet with representatives from the mall.
