Cheap condos the worst for earthquakes


“Toronto has not been known for paying attention to high-quality buildings,” Ms. Lehrer says. “I’m not an inspector, but from talking to people in the business, a lot of them have said that over the last three years, there have been quite a number of companies that are cutting more and more corners.”

OMG!  20 years ago I was looking at condos and marvelling at the lack of any lateral stiffness.  Now they're watering the concrete!  It'll be a race to what destroys the building first - time or an earthquake.  Yuck.
