Forgive me for not posting this earlier, but Real Life intervenes sometimes.

The question-and-answer phase of the public consultations on Griffintown continues this evening (in 15 minutes from now, actually) down at the ETS, corner of Peel and Notre-Dame. I was at the 2nd night, this time entirely devoted to continuing the questions from the public. I’ll write up a fuller report of those activities later.

People from the Committee for the Sustainable Redevelopment of Griffintown will be there this evening — it was another practically full house last night and promises to be again tonight. If you have questions for the City and for Devimco, you can sign up at the door. There will likely be another supplementary night of questions if there’s enough people signed up.

After that, individuals and organizations can present comments and briefs stating their case to the borough committee on March 10th.


Well, the question periods are finished now. I think that those opposed or nervous about the project were able to express themselves. Doubtful if these sessions have had any effect on Devimco. What’s more troubling is that I don’t feel like the city/municipality will feel compelled to make any serious revisions based on these sessions alone. The spin that the medias put on this will likely be more of a deciding factor…

Therefore I encourage to those with misgivings about the project to make them known as “visibly” as possible. For myself, I’m pleased to have met so many of my neighbours and will gladly stand with them in the fight for a more reasonable development of Griffintown. 😉

Well the question period was technically just that — expressions and reactions are to be delivered on March 10th and 11th. So there’s still some chance we can deliver solid reaction between now and then. We have e-petitions going up online soon.
