Montreal Mayors, particularly on the West Island where they are pushing so hard to develop all the land so developers can make their money, should take heed. Corruption doesn’t pay. Already one Mayor is off to jail and I’m sure there will be others, either disgraced or better still jailed.
Developers should be very careful as well with their bribe money. UPAC is watching. Elections are coming in November. Time to take out the garbage.
Former Laval mayor Gilles Vaillancourt charged with two counts of gangsterism
MONTREAL—Quebec’s anti-corruption squad arrested former Laval Mayor Gilles Vaillancourt and 36 other men on Thursday, the culmination of a long downfall for a municipal leader once considered untouchable.
The lengthy list of arrestees included politicians, political aides and people with ties to the construction industry.

Montreal’s green space worth more than $4B: study
MONTREAL – Montreal’s forests, rivers, swamps and other natural areas contribute at least $4.3 billion in goods and services to the economy every year, a new study says.
“We wanted to show that protecting nature isn’t an expense, it’s an investment,” said Karel Mayrand, executive director of the David Suzuki Foundation’s Quebec office. “Our economy doesn’t take into account the benefit of ecological services or the costs of the destruction of natural spaces.”
The APRPR or Association Propriétaires & Résidants Pierrefonds-Roxboro Proprietors & Residents Association, has an interesting site and a page devoted to the North South Boulevard. Check it out.
Seems like Mayor Worth is doing her best to eliminate all green spaces in this area – I guess leaving Pierrefonds-Roxboro worthless, so to speak. In passing, this project, which for now has thankfully been killed by the PQ because they hate us, is laughable. All it will do is dump tons more traffic onto Highway 40 – both East and West. That’s just what taxpayers want: more traffic congestion and more people on the West Island. More stress on our infrastructure. More people lining up at the Lakeshore ER. More people fighting for ice time at the hockey rink. But mainly more people choking the 40 so that we spend even more time commuting.
So who would benefit from the BS road? Well the developers would – because without this road they can’t build. It’s as simple as that.
The urban boulevard will cost around $15 million, and Worth said it will allow accessibility to an area where they are hoping to build 6,000 homes.

The irony is just incredible. The PQ, by hating the West Island, is actually protecting us from our politicians and their developer friends. Too funny.
Thank GOD we have elections in November. Let’s get these people out of office before they destroy everything we moved here for.
Just like the crooked politicians in Montreal who put the interests of organized crime and developers before the interests of their taxpayers, Hydro Quebec is now placing profits over health for its customers. They want to introduce “self-reporting” meters to replace the existing ones. Interestingly, the new meters will breakdown within 10 years whereas the old ones last 35 years or more. Pirates will easily be able to hack into these new meters as well. But the greatest risk is to our health – we still don’t know the consequences. During the 60s it was cool to smoke and considered safe. Right. It will be interesting to see if SADB’s council joins the fight with other West Island municipalities or just bends over for Hydro Quebec.

Hydro-Quebec smart meters spark fears in West Island
“Hydro-Québec considers the emissions of the smart-meter to be under the threshold of Health Canada Safety Code 6. The code takes into account the elevation of body temperature for six minutes. The way metres work is that they send extremely high impulses and then nothing for a certain period. So when you average a peak with zero, you end up with an average to almost zero,” he said.

The Mayor and current administration of Sainte Anne de Bellevue are such easy targets for the media – our town is constantly the source of ridicule. Unfortunately the media articles making us looking like idiots are right once more. It’s been over two years and we don’t have any progress whatsoever with respect to fixing the overpass. Everything in this municipality seems to take forever – just like the construction downtown which has been going on for years and still looks like shit.
TIME FOR A NEW MAYOR AND A NEW COUNCIL
