Mount Royal: people are percolating ideas

Luc Ferrandez has proposed a toll for car access to Mount Royal. He wrote the idea up in English in a long Facebook post that should be readable even if you’re not logged in there.

CBC had a couple of drivers test whether the Camillien-Houde is really a shortcut, which seems to me to miss the point. I don’t drive, but if I did, and Mount Royal was in the way, I’d probably enjoy driving across it because it’s nice, not because it’s supposedly faster.
