While I think it is noble to want to restore the Bank Street school, I have to wonder how much the "offer [of] municipal financial assistance" is going to cost me?

Interesting. Has the City ever embarked on such a pursuit before?

Know it all.
Citified.ca is Victoria's most comprehensive research resource for new-build homes and commercial spaces.

Unclear. SD61 only had a Class D cost estimate for restoring the school which was $7.5M compared to a $4.5M estimate for demolition and a new building. No idea what the partnership entails and if the heritage building restoration will suit the district's needs but presumably the City would have to compensate some or all of the incremental $3M cost. Could be higher too once a more detailed costing is done. I wouldn't bet on the building being in better condition than previously assumed.
