    Projet is happy with the experiment of closing Camillien-Houde to through traffic all summer. The pilot project ends tomorrow, for the meantime, and the public will be consulted on their views later in the month. TVA has five suggestions for how the city could proceed.

    The Journal claims that the closure was damaging to businesses in the Plateau.

     
    • Bill Binns 12:36 on 2018-11-01 Permalink

      That public consultation is going to be a real barn-burner. I have been taken aback (and somewhat confused) by how furious nearly everyone I know in town is over the closure of that dumb road. Apparently, early morning walks on top of the mountain are a pillar of elderly Anglo cultural life in Montreal.

      Will be very interesting to see which group of dependable voters win this battle. The elderly or the Minions of Velo Quebec.

    • Kate 12:41 on 2018-11-01 Permalink

      Bill Binns, if you have a car, and friends or relatives come to town, one of the things you do is take them for a drive over the mountain, to get a look at the city from above, maybe park and walk to the downtown lookout, depending on the time of year. Especially if you’re with people who can’t walk up, or you don’t have time, or it’s not great weather for walking – that classic drive gives people a sense of the shape of the city. Or if you’re just driving around with friends, going up there to feed the raccoons or smoke a joint is sort of a thing.

      Projet underestimated how much Mount Royal functions as the subconscious id of many Montrealers. It isn’t just a park.

    • Dhomas 05:44 on 2018-11-02 Permalink

      Right, but you could still drive up, do all those things, and drive back down. You just couldn’t drive across and back down the other side.

    Another Inuit woman, Siasi Tullaugak, was found hanging from a downtown balcony in August 2017. Police first assumed suicide, later reopening an inquiry after public criticism. But there has been no progress in the investigation.

    TMR’s demand that the REM be covered over inside its borders would add $300 million to the bill and add at least a year to the timeline.

     
    • js 08:11 on 2018-11-01 Permalink

      I haven’t followed the REM story too carefully, but from the maps I can find online it looks like the TMR section of it is the same route as the existing train. Won’t electric trains be quieter and wouldn’t most residents be commuting or at work during most of the day? What are these people complaining about? Will their quality of life be noticeable different?

    • Kate 08:47 on 2018-11-01 Permalink

      They’re going from 60 trains daily to 500, which is quite a jump even if the trains are lighter and quieter. I imagine if your lot directly borders the tracks it might be noticeable, but then you chose to live right next to the tracks, you know?

    • ant6n 08:51 on 2018-11-01 Permalink

      Yes probably somewhat quieter than existing trains, but maybe not as whisper quiet as some have suggested. Most of the existing (electric) trains aren’t super loud either. The REM will run all day at high frequency, compared to today’s service which is concentrated at rush hour. So somewhat quieter trains running a lot more often may actually mean somewhat more impact – likely only felt by residents who live very close to the active railway. But its hard to feel sorry for tmr — they’re exaggerating the issue, they may just be selfish, and the line has been there for 100 years, and for virtually all of that time had plans in the works to be turned into a high frequency rapid transit service (the line has basically been underutilized since it was built).

    As mentioned two weeks ago, McGill students held a protest Wednesday against the sports team name Redmen, which the university has used since the 1920s. The university admits that while the name originally came from its heraldic red and white, team names and nicknames later strayed into offensive use of native American visuals and terminology, although not recently. There’s no indication yet of McGill’s capitulation.

     
    • david100 19:55 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      These kids should find something better to do with their time, this is one of the stupidest things I can think of getting outraged about. Who even thinks of native americans as “redmen” these days?

    • thomas 22:20 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      From wikipedia: Stanley Frost, McGill’s eminent historian, wrote that the term “Redmen” was first used by journalists in the 1920s and referred to the red school colours and red jerseys worn by McGill teams. He also wrote that “In ancient times Celts were known as the Red Men because of their hair, still often observed among Highlander Scots. Our own Red Men were no doubt Celts in honour of James McGill’s Scots’ descent.”

    • thomas 23:04 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      As an aside, while the history of the name is interesting, present day it does sound a bit silly and sullied by unfortunate branding along the way.

      @david100 these kids are making valid arguments, organizing peaceful demonstrations, and fighting to make the school feel more inclusive to everyone. But sure, call it ”outrage”.

      I can think of better things to do with your time than belittling social causes via internet comments.

    • david 15:07 on 2018-11-01 Permalink

      Feel more inclusive to everyone? Show me a native american student at McGill who even thought about the “redman” name, let alone finds it offensive. This isn’t a cause, it’s a bunch of jokers in a room agreeing about how bad and oppressive everything is. These people should just leave McGill and enroll at Concordia, where they can sit around all day planning the revolution.

      Knowing McGill’s administration, they’ll issue a craven apology and change it, a hundred plus years of tradition down the drain because of a bunch of brainwashed malcontents casting around for an issue about which to feel offended. While they’re at it, why not just change the name of the school? We all know the James McGill wouldn’t be considered by today’s standards to be a model of political and social opinion. Where does it end?

    • jeather 20:51 on 2018-11-01 Permalink

    A body was found Tuesday morning in Viger Square. Police are treating the death as suspicious but not giving out a homicide number yet.

     
    • thomas 09:39 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      I’m surprised there isn’t more alarm about the frequency with which dead bodies are found in this part of town. Also found at the same time of day — around the time users of shelters like Maison du Père must vacate.

    • Kate 10:20 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      Even so, it’s not a lot of people. And public health must know that the homelese are often physically frail, malnourished, intoxicated, plagued with untreated illnesses, easily victimized.

      An average ten people die every day in a city this size. That a few are homeless and found in eastern downtown is not so surprising.

    • Bill Binns 13:45 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      Lets remember that the people doing the stabbing, murdering and assorted victimizing are also “homeless”.

      I’ve gotten sort of used to the people on the streets around my neighborhood but the area around Viger is inhabited by a whole different breed.

    • Mark Côté 14:18 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      Oh? How many of the murders committed in Montreal this year were by homeless people?

    • Kate 14:59 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      I don’t think many. My observations from doing this blog are that while homeless people are likely to die from random attacks or police misreading of their intentions, they’re not often the attackers. I recall one instance of one homeless man killing another but it isn’t as common as Bill Binns implies. I don’t remember any instance of a homeless person killing a “respectable” citizen, either.

    • Bill Binns 09:49 on 2018-11-01 Permalink

      There have been numerous stabbings in and around Viger. Almost always in the middle of the night. Who else is down there at that time mingling with the homeless? Options traders?

      In a sense, but as I mentioned last time, the city’s bookkeeping has to be incredibly complex. As I understand it, capital works are financed by floating municipal bonds, things like that, whereas that $60M probably can’t simply be shifted from one kind of ledger to another.

    Montreal wants to be able to tax foreign buyers of property, who have purchased 12% of available places so far this year.

     
    • david 12:10 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      I don’t believe it’s legal to tax by neighborhood or borough but, if it is, obviously this is a tax that should be put onto the neighborhoods (Plateau, Hochelaga, Rosemont, etc) and not Ville Marie or the Namur metro area and a few others high development zones (like maybe Blue Bonnets and Griffintown).

    • Ephraim 12:22 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      There are so many tax issues to fix that this should be only part of the fix. There should be a tax related to unrented/uninhabited property. The tax should simply move to square footage, unless a better method of assessment can be found, because the assessors are awful… they can be influenced by decor, wealth, etc. When it shouldn’t matter. (For example, in the hotel business, the assessors are hands off… someone comes in and takes measurements and fills in check lists and photos and the assessors have to work from that, so that they can’t be bribed and the decor beyond what is in the form can’t influence the evaluation.) Identical properties can have different evaluations when they don’t differ… something that should never be. Should you pay more because you put in parquet floors rather than vaneer, because you like the aesthetic even though the cost is the same? According to Montreal… YES! It’s nonsense. The location of the property, the value of the land, the square footage of the house, done.

    • Bill Binns 12:36 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      What is the problem that we are trying to solve here? The “ghost city” thing with the big, dark, empty condo towers?

      I don’t know. maybe at an extreme level that would be a serious problem but I have a hard time getting worked up over people paying property and school taxes but not using the roads, not using the hospitals, not putting any kids in school, not getting arrested, not showing up at the welfare office etc. Seems like a pretty sweet deal for the rest of us. Especially if it only cost us a little bit of “neighborhood vibrancy” or whatever.

    • david 12:46 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      The big problem is that there are major limits on housing construction in Montreal, and demand from actual people living in the city outstrips the number of units available. This pushes prices up. So taxing foreigners who are buying a second property hits demand and dissuades some number of people from investing.

      This is great for neighborhoods like the Plateau, which is seeing a huge influx of Americans buying second homes. But it’s a bad idea for neighorboods where there’s construction enough to absorb that demand. In Ville Marie, such a tax would hit construction, which means fewer jobs, more empty lots, and the rest. Remember that new construction is almost always good in the long term: even if a tower is built for Chinese investors, it’s in Montreal for the duration of its life, and will be housing for locals eventually. And almost all fancy apartments eventually become affordable.

    • Kevin 13:48 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      @Bill Binns,

      I lived in Vancouver near the Coal Harbour neighbourhood when it was mostly vacant.

      It was terrible. Nobody walking in the streets. Empty storefronts, or high-end stores with a lone salesperson outside desperately hoping for a client. Cars drive through from one point to another, but there are no people around in cafés or in homes.

      It resembled nothing so much as a city after an epidemic that killed off most of the population.

      I don’t want a ghost city.

    • Ephraim 14:09 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      Kevin, in one city they actually had to cap the number of foreigners buying because of the ghost buildings. Creepy walking into a building where just 10% are occupied.

    • Kate 15:41 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      Earlier this month, Douglas commented that he doesn’t have neighbours any more on his floor of his building.

    • david100 20:02 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      ^ Those units won’t remain empty indefinitely. Even if it lasts 10 years, there’s still another 50-80 years (or even longer) that those buildings will be available for rent. Let the Chinese, Americans and Arabs dump their money to build central Montreal up, just keep them out of the neighborhoods that restrict all growth (which is almost all of them).

  • Kate 06:52 on 2018-10-31 Permalink | Reply  

    A study from the public health bureau examines obstacles to pedestrian safety in Montreal, and there are a lot of them, with construction sites simply adding extra challenges to poorly designed intersections, sidewalks in bad condition and other problems that plague those of us who get around without wheels.

    Police numbers show that, over the last five years, drivers have been responsible for 60% of the fatal incidents involving pedestrians.

     
    • Daniel 10:15 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      Reading this is such a breath of fresh air.

      On the point about construction, it’s always perplexed me when construction companies take over the sidewalk, providing no safe passage for people on foot (or cyclists for that matter when it comes to cycle lanes).

      In other cities, construction companies have to set up a safe area for people on foot to navigate around the blockage. In Montreal, it seems there’s no such requirement. More-so, private construction just sees the sidewalk as an extension of their construction site, pedestrians be damned.

      As someone often on foot with a small child I’m regularly forced to make the decision of stepping out into the road to navigate, or backtrack and cross the road at a safe crossing. It’s really not on. This could be fixed by requiring construction sites to gain explicit permission to dominate a sidewalk, and making them create a safe alternative route.

      On the other subject about sidewalk width, this is definitely an issue, especially on my local high street which has sidewalks way too narrow for their usage levels.

      However, the width is often vastly reduced by street furniture and shop notice boards. One way to fix this would be to prevent businesses from placing things on the sidewalk, and try and relocate more of the street furniture out of the way. Failing that, the only other option is to expand the sidewalk by removing parking, and we know how the all-powerful car lobby feels about that kind of talk.

      I think there’s so much which can be done to improve the experience in Montreal on foot, and as a resident of Rosemont – a long-term Projet stronghold – I’m consistently surprised at the glacial rate of progress in this area. Maybe with this new report and a revisiting of the Vision Zero initiative, things are looking a bit brighter?

    • Ephraim 12:24 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      Daniel, because the city doesn’t have two rates for using the public property and it doesn’t have a time component to it. The rate for using the public space should be a function of time… the longer, the higher the price…. maybe 20% more for each week you are occupying the space for construction… something to influence how quickly you get yourself off of it. The second component should be a rate for blocking the sidewalk and having to force people to the other side, versus leaving it passable…. Maybe 100% more for blocking it, so you have to think if it is worth it to do it.

    • Bill Binns 12:28 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      @Daniel – I have had much the same experience in walking around this city. The change I would most like to see is that when a sidewalk is closed by construction, a very large permit must be displayed with the start and end dates of the closure, a permit number and a phone number for citizens to call with questions or complaints. This immediately separates the permitted closings from the illegal ones. The city does a great job at exactly this for road and sidewalk closings due to movie shoots, I don’t know why they don’t do it for construction. I am convinced a large number of sidewalk closings and especially parking closures are illegal.

      Second, an idea that has been much discussed here. It should be very expensive to close a sidewalk. So many of these closings are simply for the convenience of construction workers. They want to plunk a dumpster down or park vehicles somewhere. Charge $100.00 per linear foot of closed sidewalk per day and force construction companies to close the sidewalk as little as possible. Pour that income into the “Mobility Squad” to respond to citizen complaints.

    • Bill Binns 13:05 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      Also, how are the other 40% of “fatal incidents involving pedestrians” happening? What does a non car related pedestrian death look like? Falling down manholes? Being struck by pieces of crumbling infrastructure? I mean, we do hear about those sorts of things happening from time to time but I would have guessed that cars were involved in 95%+ or more of pedestrian deaths.

    • Blork 13:25 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      Bill Binns, you’re misreading. It means that in car-pedestrian fatal collisions, 60% were the fault of the driver and 40% were the fault of the pedestrian.

    • Bill Binns 13:48 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      @Blork – Ah, yes of course. I must be undercaffeinated.

    • Ephraim 14:14 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      @Bill Binns as I have said before, EVERY temporary no-parking sign should have a permit number displayed and the details of the permit available via the Internet. We had one company that blocked out parking on two sides of the street for almost a whole block. When I talked to the city, they had a right to 4 parking spots. City to get the city in to check it out. But would have been a LOT easier if they had no choice but to write the permit number… they would have been afraid that everyone would check. Saves a lot of money if you don’t actually have to pay for ALL. 🙂

    • jeather 14:38 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      We had dozens of no parking signs living on our block for months until finally I prodded the councillor into getting them removed. That took a few days, but they’ve returned and I do not know why. And of course people steal them and use them to reserve their own places.

    • Ephraim 14:39 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      And one requirement to list the permit would end that. No valid permit number, anyone can check and remove.

    • Bill Binns 16:33 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      I can’t remember what city I have seen doing the permit thing. New York maybe. But they were poster size, bright pink and the start and end dates were large enough to be read from a moving car. Seems like a no-brainer and an easy source of income for the city.

      I’m currently living in the shadow of a construction crane as a 14 story building goes up almost next door to me. Those guys simply own the street or at least they behave as if they do. They close the street to all traffic at will without the usual $60 an hour cop standing by doing nothing. Both sidewalks are regularly blocked by equipment and parked vehicles, forcing people to walk in the middle of the street.

      They are chewing up the street itself with heavy tracked vehicles and apparently, this rule I have been hearing about for years that construction cannot begin before 7:00AM is a joke. The woman at 311 told me that trucks illegally backing down a one way residential street at 5:45AM with their backup beepers blaring is not “construction”, it’s “traffic”.

    • jaddle 13:11 on 2018-11-02 Permalink

      Yes, show the permits! And just use an ounce of common sense – the past two days, there’s been some sort of construction along Maisonneuve, between Atwater and Guy (Bell is responsible, I think). Both days, they’ve blocked the bike path, with trucks and traffic cones, and only after that’s done do they start setting up the detour! The same thing happened in reverse in the afternoon yesterday – the detour was taken down, but the bike path was still blocked! There’s absolutely no sense in how it’s being done….

      I should add that this morning, this was the first of FOUR times on my morning commute that I had to ride either on the sidewalk or in the middle of the one-way street, going the wrong way, because the bike path was blocked. If that’s the kind of infrastructure we can expect, I’d rather they didn’t waste the money building the paths. It’s safer, and a lot less frustrating to just ride on the street normally.

      I’m complaining about the bike path, because I was on my bike this morning, but it’s certainly not much better when walking.

      Ok, rant over.

    The two city byelections planned for December 16 will cost more than a million dollars to conduct. Item goes into detail about all the expenses involved in electing a new mayor for RDP‑PAT and a new councillor in the St-Michel ward of VSMPE.

    (The two councillors who left their jobs did so to enter Quebec politics, and not from illness or need. I know democracy has a cost, but I’m half inclined to suggest they should have to kick in to cover election costs for circumstances that would never have arisen but for their personal ambitions.)

    In St-Michel, Ensemble is putting up Josué Corvil, a librarian, shown here with Lionel Perez and also with Anie Samson, who no longer holds any elected position. He’ll be running against Projet’s Nadine Raymond, who’s worked with the YMCA and is currently with Quebec’s Conseil du statut de la femme.

    In RDP-PAT, Projet is putting up Chantal Bourgeois, who was chief of staff to previous mayor Chantal Rouleau, from Ensemble, while Ensemble is running Theo Vecera for mayor, a 47-year-old with a history in community work.

    Incidentally, Anie Samson has given her first interview since losing last year’s election.

      It’s time to abolish the RDP-PAT bourough and incorporate it with Anjou and Mercier to make a big east end borough thus saving money on this election and saving money on the salary and staff of all these elected mayors, councillors and borough councillors etc… It’s not like it we really need them. It’s not like they are a must for Montreal.

    • ant6n 01:15 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      Given that the cost of the election is higher than the politicians salary, it would indicate that you don’t save money by reducing the number of elected officials. Reducing representation doesn’t reduce the the number of electors (unless you’re actually aiming for less participation in a less democratic system!)., and the cost likely scales with the numbers of electors. Rather than the number of elected. And with fewer elected, the average number of byelectuions per elector wouldn’t likely go down either.

    • Dhomas 05:35 on 2018-10-31 Permalink

      @SteveQ: I’ve generally been able to disregard your strange theories so far, but this one I just couldn’t ignore. Combining RDP-PAT with Anjou and Mercier (which is already a part of Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve) would mean that close to 300k citizens in an area of over 80km² get significantly less representation. There is also the fact that Montreal-East, which is its own demerged city, makes your while East end borough idea not entirely contiguous.
      “t’s not like it we really need them. It’s not like they are a must for Montreal.” That is a bold claim. How did you come to this conclusion? Care to back it up with something resembling fact?

      People in regular jobs can decide to quit and change jobs to fulfill their ambitions at any time, and they’re not liable for the cost of finding a replacement. And in the case of elected officals, the opportunity to run at a different level only comes around every couple of years.

      Didn’t see an indication if this is a LOW or a HIGH number. But the tl;dr version, it needs to be redesigned…. which is what we have been saying for a long time…. it specifically say to narrow the roadway, which is exactly what most people have said should be done, by adding a protected walking and cycling area.

      But only 39 of those were on Camilien Houde.

      Misled by the lede, which says “les manoeuvres interdites sur la voie Camillien-Houde, où l’on a enregistré le plus grand nombre d’accrochages.”

    In response to the attack on the Pittsburgh synagogue, the McCord museum is making its current exhibit on Montreal’s Jewish history free all week.
