Nazarian, 68, of Richmond Hill, Ont., played fast and loose with safety rules, she said. A structural engineering report from May 1999 done for Retirement Living that noted "corrosion of steel beams" was never given to Nazarian, he said, nor was the recommended remedial work done. In earlier testimony, Nazarian made the startling admission he did have money to fix the roof, but opted to buy another property because the mall was a financial "black hole" that was "doomed" from the outset.
