Today is Blog Action Day and the theme is the environment. So today we will urge our readers to think of the Falaise Saint Jacques, that sturdy little escarpment that runs the northern border of Turcot Yards. Transport Quebec has a plan to rebuild the yards and place train tracks and a freeway at the foot of the Falaise.

Under the plan the Falaise will be reduced to being a kind of organic noise barrier wall, at least those parts that survive the construction.
