Yes, I know that, but Canada Life owns the building, and they can do whatever they please. Security is vital in the building. SaskPower, SGI, SaskTel ...none of them have commercial rental units on their main floors. You could point to most of the downtown high-rises. There is very little commercial space in any of them, so yes, they do absolutely nothing to contribute to the street life. Perhaps this is an issue the City should have tackled years ago. Having a bank on the main floors hardly enhances the livelihood of the downtown.
