As to this statement by DNA in its letter:

"The DNA asks what criteria were used to deem this a minor alteration. The Ontario Heritage Act states:

As a general rule, alterations to heritage properties should repair rather than replace original features, and should not permanently damage heritage materials and construction methods. Where replacement of materials or new construction is necessary, these should match or be compatible with the original. Reversible alterations that allow for the future restoration or reinstatement of heritage features are also preferred."

There is no such wording or even sentiment of such wording in the Ontario Heritage Act. These are but guiding principles in the conservation of built heritage resources, not legislation.
