Last year, the provincial government knocked the blocks out from under a high-profile interest-free loan program for leaky condo owners. And now, it's going to be taking an axe to the grants it's been giving to cover the cost of the provincial sales tax on leaky condo repairs. On Tuesday, the government quietly announced that grant giving will end on June 30 when the tax is harmonized. Both programs were administered through the Homeowner Protection Office, which is scheduled to be shutdown later this year.
