The deadline was May, 2012, but until then you could have become an owner of a Canadian heritage lighthouse. Would you like to live in a lighthouse? What could you do to make a lighthouse profitable, as a business?
The deadline has come and gone. But it would have been interesting to live in an historical lighthouse. Pretty expensive renovations.
