5:15pm – 6:00pm
St. Jacques / Prudhomme
Demand the MTQ devise a plan to reduce the number of cars in the city, not increase it with its current plan.
A FLASH MOB is a very short event. We arrive with our banner and medical masks (to keep the noxious gases out). We have a little party on an overpass of the Decarie (not on the Turcot). We go home.
*** THIS EVENT STARTS PRECISELY AT 5:15 ***
With the Copenhagen Climate Change conference coming in December and new emissions targets being set, the MTQ projects 10% more car traffic into downtown and they’re building to accommodate it! CAR AND TRUCKS ALREADY ACCOUNT FOR 50% OF MONTREAL’S AIR POLLUTION.
Lieu de rencontre : St. Jacques et Prudhomme
(or in front of Vendome metro at 5:00)
And Climate Week also begins in NYC on Monday.
