Bob Forrest has forgotten he put the Clock Tower up for sale.
On 12 May 2015, a local business person emailed Bob to ask if the Clock Tower was still for sale.
On 13 May 2015, without missing a beat, Bob told him:
“The building is not for sale, nor has it been”.
“We are redeveloping the site in conjunction with an adjoining land assembly.”
It is an incontestable fact that on 19 June 2014 an advertisement appeared in the business section of the Globe and Mail offering for sale “the historic Clock Tower building and four commercial storefront buildings”.
180-194 Main Street South – intersection of Park Avenue and Main Street South in Downtown Newmarket.
(Site includes historic Clock Tower building and four commercial storefront buildings)

Why did Bob say the Clock Tower had never been up for sale?
Incredible as it may seem, can it possibly be the case that the great entrepreneur and developer simply forgot?
Bob’s business ethics are summed up in the four points below which appear on Forrest Group stationery. I’ve taken the liberty of adding a fifth.
Simple Operating Instructions – No Special Tools Required
1/ Treat others as you would wish to be treated
2/ Make no promises you cannot deliver, then deliver on your promises
3/ Never make a deal you would not yourself accept
4/ Acknowledge your errors
5/ Don’t re-write history and stick to the facts.
