Public Invited To Discuss Protecting Mount Royal

INVITATION TO THE PUBLIC FORUM

Mount Royal: an election issue?

Following a break in July and August, Les amis de la montagne’s public forum will be back this Wednesday, September 2. Despite appearances of an otherwise tranquil summer, several projects on the mountain have been active. The most important two projects concern the repurposing of the former mother house of the Sœurs-des-Saints-Noms-de-Jésus-et-de-Marie in Outremont and the development of the former site of the Sulpicians’ philosophy seminary in Ville-Marie. The latter is a residential project presented in public consultation that comprises 325 units that would increase the built footprint of the property by 70% largely on existing green space. The project risks being authorised by the municipal council soon, albeit with certain modifications.

Join us for a discussion on steps to be taken during the soon-to-be electoral campaign, to demand nothing less than exemplary projects on these two important sites and the protection of Mount Royal as an overriding priority.

– Smith House, 1260 Remembrance Road in Mount Royal Park
– Wednesday, September 2, 5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m.
– Free
