Pedestrian knocked down in Rosemont

A pedestrian was knocked down in Rosemont Tuesday night and is in critical condition. I don’t know what it is about that central part of Montreal that makes some of its streets so hazardous, but the other day I was crossing Rosemont Blvd. perfectly legally, by daylight, and the turning traffic was so fast and furious that I jumped back on the sidewalk for fear of getting hit. Even up here in Villeray, with drivers either mentally revving up to get on the Met or frazzled from getting off it, it’s not that bad.
