Some Turcot Buzz Today!

Sud Ouest Mayor, Benoit Dorais, does not like the MTQ plan at all.

And “L’échangeur Turcot n’est pas qu’un simple projet d’infrastructure. Il s’agit là d’un important défi pour le Québec, car il pourrait être assorti d’opportunités réelles de développement économique dans le respect de l’environnement et de la qualité de vie des montréalais. Mais il va falloir que le gouvernement soit conséquent et animé d’une volonté ferme de suivre la marche du progrès en matière de mobilité durable”, déclare François P. Granger, ing., président du RéseauIQ (le Réseau des ingénieurs du Québec). More here.

And from the CBC
“The Quebec government has to favour public transit over car traffic as it finalizes plans for the reconstruction of the Turcot interchange, a coalition of community and environmental groups as well as public health officials said on Thursday.” Includes a video of an alternative Turcot as proposed by Pierre Brisset and Pierre Gauthier. Full story here.

Where is Jean Charest? Word on the street is that he is screwed if he allows a public inquiry into corruption in the construction industry, and he is screwed if he doesn’t.
