REM articles of the day

Lot of REM stories this week, with La Presse finding out about massive cranes named Anne and Marie and various media covering the technology being used to build the section in the West Island.

Brossard residents are waking up to the possibility of more traffic in their streets near the REM station. I’m noting this Journal’s immediate reference to the “train de la caisse de dépôt” in the lede, because that reference has been cropping up – a little late.

A friend told me recently he had chatted at his gym with a guy working as a site supervisor at one of the West Island REM sites, and the guy said he’d never seen such chaotic ad-hockery on a big site before. For what it’s worth.
