    Several hundred thousand people marched Friday for the climate in Montreal. CBC estimates it was a crowd of half a million, making it the biggest demonstration in the city’s history.

      I would have to give kudos to the STM agents in the metro for keeping everything running smoothly as well as the transit folks of the various South Shore agencies at Longueuil. Just the act of answering questions and calmly keeping everyone moving goes a long way to alleviate potential commuter rage

    Here are the road closures for the weekend (after the march), and let’s hope these ones are accurate.

      I just thought it was so weird! I used waze or google maps to plot my road closure route, and it routed me right through them. So I checked the second, and then the very annoying to use transport quebec website, all of which informed me that the roads were open. This weekend I don’t plan to drive though.

      Pisses me off we can’t click these images (for ants). What gives, CTV? Open in new tab and they’re 400×225. What year is it?

      You can get clickable images on the mobilité Montréal web site

    La Presse has live reports on the climate march. Above is the view from the city traffic camera at Park and Pine around 1 p.m.

      The court of appeal has reversed a 2016 decision that invalidated a Plateau borough bylaw outlawing commercial billboards. Advertisers have six months to take their billboards down. Second link is from earlier in this story, 2011.

        I was actually just thinking about this the other day when I saw a cluster of billboards in the Plateau. I’m glad they’ll finally be coming down. I hope other boroughs follow suit.

        I wonder how many plexes or condos help offset costs by having a commercial billboard. Their fees will have to be raised to replace this revenue source.
