City engineers drown out mayor’s speech

Mayor Plante was to inaugurate the “new” Plaza St-Hubert on Friday, but representatives of the city’s engineering union showed up and made a lot of noise to drown her out.

The union is pressing the city to give more work to its own internal workers rather than contracting out to private enterprise.

Update: Radio-Canada reports on the inauguration itself. The street will be pedestrianized all weekend.
