From The Chronicle,
“In less than a year, the grassroots campaign for better public transportation in the West Island created by former MNA Clifford Lincoln and former director general of the CLD West Island Georges Nydam has blossomed into a veritable coalition. Train de l’Ouest now has the support of most West Island mayors and MNAs of the area and has been formally recognized by Premier Jean Charest, Minister of Transport Raymond Bachand and Minister of Finance Sam Hamad. For this reason, The Chronicle pronounces Lincoln and Nydam as the West Islanders of 2010.”

Everyone in the SouthWest knows that the government’s Turcot plan is just a bad idea, but Turcot, and all the health and transit issues it covers, is also a vital link for West Islanders. It’s great to see the efforts of these two gentlemen being recognized, and hopefully it will lead to West Islanders getting more involved in the transit issues of the day!
