committee to initiate a business plan that would include a new residence and short- term corrective measures, such as the in- stallation of a sprinkler system at strategic places. A price tag of $47.7 million has been placed on a new facility to replace the Cartier Boulevard home which no longer meets provincial standards. A “life cycle analysis” identified the absence of sprink- lers as one of many flaws at the 146-bed in- stitution built at a time when building and safety laws were less stringent, and when residents were more independent. A new residence would cost $46,740,000 to build while the counties may have to pay as much as $20 million between now and 2026 on repairs to the existing struc- ture, according to a facility assessment re- port prepared by Levac Robichaud Leclerc Associates. New home could be built within next five years
