Incoming prime minister Justin Trudeau will decide soon – whether he and his family will delay their move into 24 Sussex Drive.

That’s because the prime minister’s official residence is in need of major renovations.  A report from the auditor general’s office in 2008 put the cost of renovating the building at 10-million dollars.

The report lists a number of problems – including cracked windows and caulking; noisy and inefficient air-conditioning units; a deficient plumbing system; and an inadequate electrical system.

Trudeau and his family have been renting a home for the last two years or so – in the wealthy Ottawa neighbourhood of Rockcliffe – but it’s been sold.

The National Capital Commission  manages 24 Sussex Drive – and says it will ensure the Trudeaus are accommodated in a comfortable and appropriate setting.
