Quebecers prefer the suburbs

A survey made for Remax shows that Quebecers prefer the suburbs when they decide to buy property – bad news for those who see urban densification as the way forward. However, in Mont St-Hilaire, a judge struck down two anti-densification bylaws, saying they contravened the urban agglomeration’s PMAD (Plan métropolitain d’aménagement et de développement), so there may be some hope the arable land around Montreal won’t be completely covered in concrete by 2050.
