Banque Nationale promises new park

The Banque Nationale is promising a new park down by the Quartier International, but there’s no mention here of any intention to give the land to the city. As with Domtar, which created a park and then, oopsy, sold the land for a condo project, any privately held land can be a park today – maybe for PR or tax reasons – and then disappear under bulldozers tomorrow.

In other park news, the Gazette says the McCord museum is not happy the city is proposing a new park on a piece of land it thought it had locked down for a new museum building.
