Valérie Plante: interview and crit

La Presse interviews Valérie Plante; François Cardinal’s view is that Plante sees Montreal purely in terms of its livability on a neighbourhood level, not so much as a major economic hub. The paper even got a piece from Laurent Blanchard, who was interim mayor briefly in 2013, and who sees Plante mostly as the anti-car mayor, a woman who pounced on the pandemic as a pretext to install bike paths and pedestrian streets.
